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 benefits of T1 even if you're not in a market for a complete T1? For many people the largest factor in their choice is reliability. You must think about it too if reliability is critical to the applications you run over your network line. 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 Gilchrist, however it is not intended to handle commercial applications or high volumes of traffic 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 because of the fee schedule of T1 pricing. A T1 line is established by providing a "loop" or wire from the user's building to the CO where the service provider 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 connection reaches the CO it can tie into the carrier's network and communicate with any destination. This loop is paid in full whether you use a part of the available bandwidth 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 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 building. 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 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 query 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 connections can be thought of as critical. An important connection can be thought of like a lifeline, without which your business would be in trouble.
