What is T1 Internet Speed?

What is a T1 internet connection?

At LeasedLine.co.uk, we understand that it can be slightly overwhelming when you are required to select one from many different internet packages for your business, especially if you are not educated on the subject.

A T1 internet line, or an E1 line as it is more commonly known as here in Europe, is one of the earliest forms of internet connectivity that was adopted by businesses in the UK and is a solution that is still used by a variety of companies to this day.

But is T1/E1 internet connectivity the correct option for your company? Well, in our latest blog post, we explore this internet connector in more detail and compare it to some of the more modern, Ethernet solutions that are available.

Is an E1/T1 internet line right for your business?

Although E1 internet lines are over 20 years old, and T1 lines have been around for nearly half a century, both solutions are still used by many organisations, particularly by smaller sized businesses and private offices.

These types of connection provide up to 24 separate channels for data and voice, allowing a reliable connection for up to 24 different users at any given time as one user’s data usage will not affect the transmission of data to the remaining 23 channels.

However, an E1 internet line only provides maximum upload and download speeds of 2.048 Mbps, a factor that perhaps emphasises just how dated the product is.

The astronomical rise of Ethernet connectivity has somewhat surpassed E1 and T1 internet connections, with more modern leased line solutions offering businesses substantially higher upload/download speeds for prices that remain relatively affordable.

The importance of a fast, reliable internet connection in the modern business world is undeniable, and it is crucial that you equip your business with a solution that can help you stay ahead of the competition.
