T1 Internet Connection Essentials
At the most significant level, a T1 Internet connection is the link from your company's data infrastructure to the rest of the world. A T1 connection is sometimes referred to as a "dedicated service" as the service is delivered to and from the customer premise from the CO (Central Office) without combining it with other traffic. A T1 connections is established by providing a "loop" or wire from the user's premises to the CO where the service provider has equipment. Part of the cost of a T1 is the "loop charge" or the monthly rental fee for the wire that is rented from the local phone company. Once the connection reaches the CO it can access the carrier's network to reach any destination.
While understanding the service may be rather straightforward, getting the service implemented is not always so painless. Like any business decision, a switch in T1 providers should be properly investigated. However, you probably don't have time to listen to all the different sales pitches that you should in order to get the best service. Consider shopping in real time by using a broker at T1 Market.
