For many people, the biggest issue is dependability and if reliability is critical to the applications you run on your connection, you ought to seriously look into swapping out your DSL link with a T1. DSL is a swift and cost efficient method of acquiring high speed bandwidth, but it is not intended to carry commercial applications or huge numbers of users that a T1 line can handle.
Reliability becomes critical when customers or employees rely 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 connection is crucial.

Residential customers who are most sensitive to price should not consider a T1 circuit unless they have a business reason to pay for such a circuit and cannot access DSL service. Most people don't realize that a DSL connection can be just as fast as a T1 at 1.5Mbps. The shortcoming of DSL is that it is oversubscribed.

SDSL (Synchronous DSL) is a business class DSL and is ranked as a higher priority than residential DSL or ADSL (Asynchronous DSL). This means it is not oversubscribed to the extent than ADSL and is subject to fewer bandwidth limitations. In short, if price is your critical consideration, go with DSL. If reliability is the critical factor, buy a dedicated T1 and don't be afraid of the T1 line cost.
