A T1 Internet line is an excellent option for keeping multiple computers connected at high Internet speeds. This is especially important in the business world where time is money.
But more often than not, it’s hard to distinguish the difference between all the types of Internet connections, so we’re here to help.
What are Fiber Optics?
Fiber optics are long, thin strands of very pure glass about the diameter of a human hair. They are arranged in bundles called optical cables used to transmit signals over long distance and carries data at a moderately fast rate of 1.44 megabits per second or 192,000 bits per second. The T1 line carries data approximately 60 percent faster than a home modem can.
A T1 line can effectively be split into 24 different channels for data and voice, making this an effective choice for small businesses and to be used in the home where different channels are required. T1 is a fast and efficient Internet connector that is cost-effective and secure. If you use the majority of the available channels for voice, your data speed can reduce. However, if you use the T1 channels for data, you will not see a variation in data speed.
Fiber optics have several advantages over traditional communication lines:
- Fiber optic cables have the ability to have much greater bandwidth than metal/ Analog cables.
- Fiber optic cables are less susceptible than metal cables to interference.
- Fiber optic cables are much thinner and lighter than metal wires.
- Fiber networks have lower ping times and latency then cable, T1 or EoC
Real Business fiber networks are dedicated internet pipes. Not shared with your neighbor like what Cable, Fios or Uverse do with their internet fiber hoods. When you buy Business fiber, the service is not shared with anyone in the local area. That is why Uverse, Cable and Fios are several hundred dollars a month and real business fiber is 4-5 times more expensive.

—–Tips from Fast Business Internet Professionals—–
Entry level speed for fiber is 10Mbps X 10mbps and the price points range from $825- $1000 a month in most cases. What most companies do not know is that 20mbps X 20mbps is usually only priced $50-$100 dollars higher than the 10X 10Mbps. New customer pricing is always the most competitive. Take advantage of the price break and think about moving to 20mbps right away. Most companies go to 20X 20mbps within the first three years anyway and then they end up paying more per month than if they had originally signed for 20X 20Mbps.
