Business Ethernet - Is It Best For Your Business?

For anyone who is unclear about business Ethernet, T1 lines, DSL, cable, or other types of Internet online connectivity that you need to have for your organization, you are not in isolation. The vast majority of consumers who are not familiar in the modern ever-changing world of telecommunications do not have an understanding of the differences, and instead base their conclusion on which technology to use on price only.

The sad truth of the matter is that basing this kind of choice on price alone is no different from anything else where you would put faitth on your determination simply on price. Would you get a 1975 Volkswagen rather than a brand new Cadlillac just because the other is cheaper? Would you get hold of a compact pad of paper and a pen instead of a smartphone to keep track of things because it's cheaper? Do you consume Schlitz beer as an alternative to Heineken because it's cheaper? Does not the component of QUALITY account for something, along with the classic question of meeting your needs?

DSL and cable are good … as residential services. They were created for residential usage because there is next to no quality built in. They were created to be over-subscribed, which is the sole method that they can meet the price points they advertise it for. You get zero guaranteed uptime, you get zero guaranteed bandwidth availability, you get zero guaranteed fix time if there is a problem, and you get zero speed guarantees. None in any way. Are you prepared to gamble your whole organization on something with zero guarantees? In today's fiercely aggressive market in any industry, that just isn't going to appear like a bright move to me.

You say you are considering FIOS or "business class" DSL or cable? First, please note that FIOS is simply only cable with a thyroid condition and still delivers zero guarantees. As far as "business class DSL or cable", business class is still shared among up to 60 or more additional customers in your region, it is not dedicated, and also has zero guarantees.

Business Ethernet does not necessarily signify fiber, but what it does necessarily mean is that you get the exact same guarantees for this DEDICATED circuit as you would with the SLA (Service Level Agreement) that you obtain with a T1 or DS3 circuit from a first tier carrier. And you get the guarantees for all the solutions above that neither DSL nor cable can offer.

Business Ethernet is not available in all parts of the country but it is commonly available in most big cities and almost certainly available inside major cities in the United States, as opposed to T1 which is available almost anywhere you can have a phone line installed.

When does Business Ethernet create financial good sense? Characteristically it begins to make financial sense for your organization when your bandwidth requirements are greater than 5 to 6 MB. In most medium and large cities across the United States, you can get a 10 MB Ethernet circuit for less than what a four bonded T1 (6 MB) would cost.

Business Ethernet is not for residential or home business usage. At home, you do not have the demand to put a dozen or more individuals on the same circuit at the same time. Even though it can be installed at home, it is almost never cost effective to do so.

As a final point, do your research. Getting Business Ethernet or any other sort of circuit from a second or third tier carrier is a likely recipe for problems. If you are gambling the longevity of your organization on this connectivity, doesn't it make more good sense to go with a trusted, proven, and reliable carrier who can maintain your circuit running fast and efficiently? The few dollars you save by choosing a second or third tier carrier is undoubtedly going to cost you much more than your savings in the long term. If you are shopping for business Ethernet for your business, doesn't it only make sense to go with a leader? Shop from one place from amongst about 30 first tier carriers who can provide service nationwide with a low price guarantee.
