The Secrets of Fractional T1
If a full T1 isn't in your budget, you need to consider a fractional T1 line instead. Why not get all the extra benefits of T1 even if you're not looking for a full T1? A significant number of customers consider the largest factor in their choice is reliability. You should consider it too if reliability is critical to the types of software you run over your network line. If you are currently using DSL for your internet connection, you must think about replacing it with fractional T1. DSL is a quick and cost effective method of acquiring high speed bandwidth in Pittsburg, however it is not intended to handle mission-critical applications or large numbers of users as are T1 connections.
One drawback with fractional T1 connections is the cost. Even though you won't have a full T1, you will be paying quite a bit more than you did for your DSL connection. This is due to the structure of T1 pricing. A T1 connection is established by installing 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 provided by the local phone company. Once the line gets to the CO it can tie into the carrier's network and communicate with any destination. This loop is paid in full whether you use a part of the available capacity or the full 1.5Mbps and therefore your cost for a 768Kbps fractional T1 connection will never be fifty percent of the cost of a 1.5mbps full T1 connection.
Although the price decrease is not what you might wish it to be, this may still put a fractional T1 within your budget and be the best way to get dedicated service into your office. Once you have fractional service, upgrading to full service is simple. Fractional service typically comes in 256Kbps increments from 256Kbps up to a full T1 at 1.5Mbps. Find the service that's best for you, but if you are supporting critical services, think about reliability. Reliability becomes critical when customers or employees depend on your connection for immediate responses. If your customers use your connection to access your databases or your server or the Internet, then reliability of your network is critical. If your employees depend on your connections because you host the e-mail server in house or host web servers or ASP type products, your connections are considered critical. A critical connection can be viewed much like a lifeline, without which your business would be negatively impacted.
