Tips on Buying Fractional T1
If a full T1 isn't in your budget, you need to consider a partial T1 line instead. Why not get all the extra advantages of T1 even if you're not seeking for a full T1? For many people the largest factor in their decision making is reliability. You must think about it too if reliability is critical to the applications you run over your network connection. If you are now using DSL for your internet connection, you should seriously consider replacing it with fractional T1. DSL is a quick and cost effective method of acquiring high speed bandwidth in Warrior, however it is not intended to handle commercial applications or high volumes of traffic as are T1 connections.
One drawback with fractional T1 connections is the price. Even though you won't have a full T1, you wind up paying quite a bit more than you otherwise would for your DSL connection. This is due to the fee schedule of T1 pricing. A T1 line is established by providing a "loop" or cable from the user's building to the CO where the carrier has equipment. Part of the cost of a T1 is the "loop charge" or the monthly rental fee for the cable that is provided by the local phone company. Once the line gets to the CO it can access 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 building. Once you have fractional service, upgrading to full service is easy. 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 important services, think about reliability. Reliability becomes important when customers or employees need to use your connection for immediate responses. If your clients use your connection to query 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 communication lines are considered critical. A critical connection can be viewed much like a lifeline, without which your business would be negatively impacted.
