The Secrets of 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 in a market for a full T1? For many people the biggest 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 connection. If you are currently 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 Grover, however it is not intended to handle mission-critical applications or high volumes of traffic as are T1 connections.
One disadvantage with fractional T1 connections is the price. Even though you won't have a full T1, you will be paying quite a bit more than you did for your DSL connection. This is due to the structure of T1 pricing. A T1 line is established by providing a "loop" or cable from the user's premises 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 bandwidth 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 the best way to get dedicated service into your office. Once you have fractional service, migrating to full service is simple. 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 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 connections can be thought of as critical. A critical connection can be viewed much like a lifeline, without which your company would be negatively impacted.
