We all knew that the web has becoming faster than ever than we can imagine. In fact, the search engine giant, Google has blatantly advocated a faster web wherein viewing web pages can be as fast as flipping a page of a magazine.

That’s quite fascinating to know and taking these improvements into consideration, how can you appreciate these things if you don’t have a faster internet service?

The definition of broadband has indeed changed from the time of its inception and according the latest terminology attached to such term based on the International Telecommunication Union Standardization Sector (ITU-T), it has recommended that any internet with a transmission capacity of at least 1.5 to 2.0 Mbit/s faster than any primary rate ISDN is broadband. The FCC however says that broadband is 768 kbit/s (0.8 Mbit/s) while the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has defined broadband as 256 kbit/s in at least one direction and is almost the standard baseline for marketed broadband.

If the economy continues to flourish in the upcoming months then it would be more strategic for businesses to find better internet connectivity solutions as such a business t1 with more reliable and secure business ethernet capabilities.

T1s are generally more robust and include more stringent service level agreements (SLAs) although this sometimes drive up provider’s maintenance cost by providing 24×7 support this compensates the expensive nature of T-1 lines since uptime and bandwidth data rates are guaranteed, service quality is ensured, and blocks of static IP addresses are commonly included.

T-1 and fractional T-1 data lines are symmetric, which means that their upload and download data rates are the same. A bonded T1 uses special equipment and routing protocols to ensure that the total available bandwidth of the T1’s can be used for a single data transmission session. The nomenclature for a T-1 varies widely and is sometimes referred to as leased line.

In general, this type of internet service provides greater value for businesses that have intensive bandwidth needs and require a simple yet managed high-bandwidth solution.
