  This piece provides an overview of T1 Internet Service for those businesses that have very high uptime needs. Since T1 Internet service includes a service level agreement (SLA) , usual uptime exceeds that of DSL or cable. Also, with T1 Internet service, the upload and download speeds are a constant. This is valuable for critical information needs, where limited downtime can be tolerated and productivity depends on consistently fast Internet access. In addition, for voice usage a T1 can include quality of service (QOS) to ensure the access speed and consistency needed for quality voice traffic.

Numerous small companies use low-priced Internet access methods , such as DSL, cable, and fios. To keep costs down, all of these methods use shared resources to connect users to the Internet itself. Also, reliability is not assured , athough a "best effort" is made to preserve connectivity. A business Internet T1 data line, although using technology identical to SDSL, is given a higher importance by the telcos. A T1 fault will be corrected within hours whereas a DSL, cable, or fios user might experience a 5 day turn around time for repair.

Telecommunications vendors supply higher-end services , such as business Internet T1 service, in order to address higher reliability and consistency needs in some businesses. As a business grows and adds employees, the value of an Internet connection increases and the business often needs higher availability. Often, the usage and reliance on the Internet also increases when services such as voice, and shared data services are moved to the "cloud." In the neighborhood of 10 employees , a business will find it's telecommunications needs economically served by a business Internet T1 service.

Voice over IP (VOIP) has become commonly used as well as various shared data services. Examples include prevalent applications such as SalesForce, GoogleApps, and many more. Generally, the quality of information available on the Internet has improved over time, causing more extensive dependence on connectivity to applications and online data sources. Changing business operations and usage all necessitate additional bandwidth and reliability. Sales revenue and productivity of employees can be affected for each minute of downtime. Imagine having no office telephone service for up to 5 days.

Although difficult to quantify , timely information or lack thereof can make or break many small enterprises. This is especially true for companies using "cloud computing," where online collaboration and information for daily operations in office calendaring, documents and financial data are only accessible through the company Internet link.
