Internet Connections  

Common types of High Speed Internet Connections and how they may affect your facility:

l Cable Hi-Speed - This is shared technology among an area, not a one to one internet connection. If the site is in an area that has heavy internet usage in the afternoon, internet speed will be faster in the morning and slow down in the afternoon.

l DSL - This is a one to one internet connection, but the speed per computer is going to be dependant upon how many computers are accessing the internet at one time.

For example:

I have DSL with a connection speed of 2.1 MBS, but if all three of my computers are accessing the internet at the same time, my speed can drop to 500KBS. Most companies that offer DSL have pricing options. Typically, the cheaper the monthly rate, the slower the connectivity.

l T1 - This is typically used on a campus or shared between businesses. This type of internet connection can accommodate 200+ users. T1 providers typically guarantee a high level of service, speed, and consistency.
