Tips on Buying Fractional T1
If you can not afford a full T1 line, you need to consider a fractional 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 decision making is reliability. You should think about it too if reliability is vital 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 Lisbon, however it is not intended to support commercial applications or high volumes of traffic as are T1 connections.
A drawback with fractional T1 connections is the price. Even though you won't have a full T1, you wind up paying quite a bit more than you did 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 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 wire that is provided by 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 bandwidth or the full 1.5Mbps and therefore your cost for a 768Kbps fractional T1 connection will never be fifty percent of the cost 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 the best way to get dedicated service into your building. Once you have fractional service, upgrading to full service is simple. Fractional service typically comes in 256Kbps increments from 256Kbps all the way 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 important when customers or employees need to use 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 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 business would be negatively impacted.
