T1 technology can be just what your business needs to run more efficiently. However, the technology you get is only as good as the business T1 line provider that gives it to you!
So, how do you find the best one?
No matter which T1 line provider you go with, the speed is going to be the same – 1.544 Mbps. So, you have to look for other things that set them apart. There are lots of things, but the biggest is price.
Luckily, you can compare prices from lots of providers right on one website. All you have to do is type in your business’ address, and you’ll get the name and price of every provider in your area! Depending on the competition in your exact neighborhood, the monthly fees may be a whole lot cheaper than you thought!
Each T1 line provider will have its own SLA – or, Service Level Agreement, so read them all carefully to see exactly what you’re being promised. Different providers will make different guarantees.
For example, just because you don’t have to share your T1 line with anyone else doesn’t mean you’re automatically getting a great uptime guarantee. You might be surprised to find that a certain SLA promises much lower than 99% -- the accepted standard.
All T1 lines aren’t created equally, and they can go way beyond basic internet service. For example, there are voice T1 lines (like PRI T1 lines) that can replace your old phone service with fancy digital channels AND save you money.
Or, you can get integrated T1 lines that roll your phone and internet service all into one.
Or, if one T1 line isn’t enough for your big business, fear not! You can get a bonded T1 line that takes a bunch of T1 lines and “bonds” them together into one big connection.
However, any ol’ T1 line provider won’t offer all these things – so you’ll need to decide exactly what kind of service you need, then look for a provider that offers it. Otherwise, you might miss out!
This is a fancy way of saying that your T1 line can connect several locations to the same network. If your T1 line provider only offers point-to-point service, you’ll only be able to connect your main office and one other place to the network – which isn’t helpful if you have a few office locations or a couple of remote backup locations.
