O.k it's been so difucult to me, to find some real comparasion against ADSL, DSL Vs. Dedicated Internet Access.
This is the issue... the company for who i'm work for, is growing, so the network services too. We have a 1Mb ADSL internet connection with a static ip, it works fine , but i have this problem: with this kind of connection only one static ip it is possible to have, because to connect to my ISP i need PPPoE so my static ip is linked to my user name and password.
With this ADSL service running, i have one linux web, e-mail and ftp server and one windows 2003 web server running smoothly, with no problem. But we want to expand de services provided to our costumers, like remote access for help desk, long distance virtual education,increase de number of web hosting, a site for downloadign and uploading area, share point services... etc....
So, i talk with several isp personal and all them tolds me tolds me, that i need a Dedicated Internet Access to do that, because de ashyncronus services provided by ADSL allows me to download fast but to have slow uploads and besides, I share mi bandwith on peak internet traffic hours because it is connected to general internet access.
Then i try to look for a best solution and de Dedicated Internet Access (DIA), seem to have all, but, here is the but... none of those isp providers, gave me a good comparsion with my adsl. I mean, o.k with DIA y have direct connection, real bandwith,severals statics ip, stability, reability..etc..etc.. but since these services are very expensives and the access speed starts from 64Kb to 34 MBps or more , wich one can replace the service that a actually have with my adsl, becuase a DIA of 1024KB it is very, very very, expensible almost 6 to 8 more than my actually adsl. Some provides tolds me that with a 128Kbps with DIA it is enough. But then the speeds of an ADSL and DIA are not technical speaking the same ??? With ADSL when i download some stuff i get a 80-110Kbps transfer rate, so it is very fast, and all the rest of the computers working, can navigate , download, etc... the same as i am with too little decrease of the speed, with a 128Kb DIA can be done the same???
Wih the ADSL, i feel that i work fine and maybe if i could have more than one static ip would be great but that it is not possible.
But may be, on the otherside, i'm missing the hole picture of the beneficts of have an DIA.
