How does DSL compare to a T1 line for speed?
Posted on 2006-05-03
We have a T1 line right now and its been great. Never any problems really since we got it about a year ago. We have probably around 10 users that are on it pretty much all the time plus an Exchange Server for 40 users. Now the controller finds out that AT&T DSL broadband is available in the area at a substantial savings. I am amazed because when we had the T1 put in, we were not eligible for DSL because we are "out in the country", very rural setting. The plan that we would take is advertized at 1.5 -6.0 Mbps down and 384 -512 kbps up. I understand that the T1 is somewhere around 1.5 Mbps, but I haven t seen any apples for apples comparisons of the two or for that matter, any up_down ratings for the T1. If we get the DSL how will that compare with the T1 that we have now?
