The Secrets of Fractional T1
If you can not afford a full T1 line, you need to consider a partial T1 line instead. Why not get all the extra benefits of T1 even if you're not seeking for a full T1? A significant number of customers consider the largest factor in their choice is reliability. You must think about 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 should seriously consider replacing it with fractional T1. DSL is a quick and inexpensive method of acquiring high speed bandwidth in /ar/st. Francis, however it is not intended to support commercial applications or large numbers of users as are T1 connections.
One disadvantage with fractional T1 service 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 line is established by installing a "loop" or wire 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 rented from 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 cost for a 768Kbps fractional T1 connection will never be half the price of a 1.5mbps full T1 connection.
Although the price reduction 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 important services, think about reliability. Reliability becomes critical when customers or employees depend on your connection for immediate responses. If your clients use your connection to access your databases or your server or the Internet, then reliability of your connection 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 can be thought of as critical. A critical connection can be viewed much like a lifeline, without which your company would be negatively impacted.
