Why Seattle T1 Line Prices
T1 dedicated lines for business
locations in the Seattle area have seen dramatic rate reductions
By: John Shepler
Seattle, Washington occupies a strategic
position in the northwest corner of the country, making it a
logical point of presence for just about all competitive telecom
vendors. The greater Seattle area has long been a leader in technology,
with Boeing, Microsoft, Amazon.com being a few of the most recognizable
This major manufacturing and technology
presence and an environment that fosters innovation has lead
to a telecommunications infrastructure buildup in the Seattle
area. Major network providers such as XO communications, Megapath,
Sprint and AT&T have points of presence in Seattle to facilitate
nationwide and international long haul connections. Metro access
connections include OCx SONET fiber optic links, wavelength services,
Carrier Ethernet, MPLS networks, Frame Relay, ATM, Wireless Broadband,
Dedicated Internet and point to point private lines.
The Reason T1 Prices Have Tumbled in
The trickle-down effect of so much high speed bandwidth from
many competing carriers is that lower speed services such as
DS3 and T1 lines are no longer the exclusive and pricey options
affordable only by large businesses and educational facilities.
They T1 line you order today might cost as little as half what
it did a year or two ago.
Just in time, too. Downtown and suburban
Seattle businesses of all sizes have a growing need for digital
connectivity. T1 lines are essential for point of sale transactions,
financial reporting, PBX phone systems, voice and data convergence
using VoIP, point to point virtual networks, and dedicated Internet
Types of T1 Line Services Available
T1 lines come in different flavors. You can configure a T1 line
for local and/or long distance telephone service for a call center
or office phone system. A dedicated Internet T1 gives you highly
reliable access suitable for email and Web servers and broadband
phone. Integrated T1 combines Internet access with standard telephone
service on one line. Private line service offers secure connectivity
between business locations.
Another bonus of T1 line service is that
you can increase your bandwidth incrementally by bonding T1 lines
together to create multiples of 1.5 Mbps service. Start with
one T1 line and bond in more as your business grows.
How About Ethernet?
Carrier Ethernet directly competes with T1 and is available with both copper and fiber optic delivery. Bandwidths range from 2 or 3 Mbps on the low end up to 10 Gbps and beyond. Pricing per Mbps is more attractive than T1 lines.
