You would have to contact the Service Provider to be positive but i would interpret this as bandwidth dedicated to a particular route that is local to their router. For example, if you was to have more than one dedicated server from this provider, you could dedicated the amount of bandwidth that was allowed for communication between the two hosts.

it is a T1 connection, a speed of 1Mbps guaranteed connectivity within the country.

unlike DSL which is a Shared bandwidth even tho you have 1Mbps, you are still sharing it with other subscriber.

Depends on the number of hosts that are sharing the 2 megs and the amount of traffic they are consuming. I would say between the two options, the 1 meg dedicated is the wisest choice.

for inter-office (within the country) I'll go for 1MPBS dedicated bandwidth. it is guaranteed.

2Mbps it is shared there are no guarantee , if it shared by many then that 2Mbps will sure drop below 1Mbps.Try home ADSL for example, apply for 2Mbps and you will surely experience during peak hours how slow can it gets. :)

Obviously it depends on your usage. With shared connections it means you have up to 2 Mbps available, but it is not always available. But my personal experience is that most users ask for far more traffic than they actually need, which is why I go for the 2 Mbps is most cases. Nevertheless their might also be times when you do not get the full 1 Mbps.

To be completely sure ask them to have 0.5 Mbps dedicated an an additional 1 Mbps shared. Then you have a basic guaranteed bandwidth and nevertheless as I explained earlier in most cases your connection is usually much faster in the average.
