How much better is NxT1 than a T1 connection?
SilverHawk 1 year ago
I remember when a T1 connection was the greatest thing I'd ever seen, but time marches on, companies grow and now a T1 line is marginal for our business as far as speed and capacity goes. Our provider offers NxT1 as a relatively affordable step up for SMBs. I've never used a NxT1 connection that I know of, and was wondering if the speeds are reliable, or if it is like the DSL connection I have at home, where I get about 1/2 of the advertised speeds on download, and uploading is so slow that it is painful. Of course, in the fine print, my home ISP notes that the advertised speeds are in a perfect world, one in which I apparently do not live. Is the improvement of NxT1 advertising hype, or is it a legitimate significant step up in performance?
