Tips on Buying 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 in a market for a full T1? For many people the biggest factor in their decision making is reliability. You must consider it too if reliability is critical to the types of software you run over your network line. If you are now 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 Hanford, however it is not intended to support commercial applications or high volumes of traffic as are T1 connections.
One drawback with fractional T1 service is the cost. 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 because of the fee schedule 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 wire that is rented from the local phone company. Once the line gets to the CO it can tie into the carrier's network and reach any destination. This loop is charged in full whether you use a part 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 reduction is not what you might wish it to be, this may still put a fractional T1 within your budget and be a great way to get dedicated service into your office. Once you have fractional service, migrating 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 right 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 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 communication lines can be thought of as critical. An important connection can be viewed much like a lifeline, without which your company would be negatively impacted.
