Hi johndew,

Could be all kind of speeds, most of the time it's the same as download. You should see it as a dedicated DSL connection.

If you have a full T1 is is symetric and the uplad and download speed are both 1.5Mb/s If you T1 is fractional, it would be the fraction of the 1.5Mb that you have.

You have to remember that a T1 is typically split among hubs/switches - so many people might be using it simultanously, which could in effect reduce your speeds...

sconstable,
Yep, that can be done, but really, there are a lot of different T1 speeds.

That was why I included the part about fractional T1.

A regular T1 is ONLY capable of UP TO 1.5Mb/s There are Bustable T1s( Burstable speeds are faster than 1.5Mbs) and then there are ather types of Circuits.

shivsa that site said
I Full Data T1 will give you 1.5MB up and down, which in a browser will show about 193KBps.

8 bits = 1 Byte
but ur site before said
T1 Connection

    Upload Speed: 2-10Mbps
    Download Speed: 2-10Mbps

Since most SLAs for T1s include a 1.5Mb CIR theroreticly you can get anything over 1.5Mbs.  But in my 12 years woking on WAN links, I have never seen a T1 sustan anything like that.

If you want a stable faster-than-T1 connection you can "bind" multipule T1 with the right hardware.
