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 looking for a full T1? For many people the largest factor in their choice is reliability. You should consider it too if reliability is vital to the applications 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 Egypt, however it is not intended to handle mission-critical applications or high volumes of traffic as are T1 connections.
One drawback with fractional T1 connections is the cost. Despite the fact that you don'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 structure of T1 pricing. A T1 connection 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 reach any destination. This loop is charged in full whether you use a fraction of the available capacity or the full 1.5Mbps and therefore your price for a 768Kbps fractional T1 connection will never be half the price of a 1.5mbps full T1 connection.
Although the price decrease is not what you might expect it to be, this may still put a fractional T1 within your budget and be a great way to get dedicated service into your building. Once you have fractional service, upgrading to full service is easy. Fractional service usually 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 important when customers or employees need to use 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 vital. 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 thought of like a lifeline, without which your company would be negatively impacted.
