Ethernet Internet Service Access For Business

Internet access has become key to doing business, both on the Web and for bricks and mortar operations. The Internet has become ubiquitous in connecting to customers, suppliers, remote workers and even between company locations. So, is business Internet the same as what consumers use or are there differences?

There are various characteristics of Internet service access you can choose, including dedicated or shared, symmetrical or asymmetrical, wired or wireless, copper or fiber, bandwidth level and cost. One of the newest and most cost effective services that meets the needs of many business locations is Ethernet Internet service. Can it be what you are looking for?

These Ethernet Internet service access quotes are for business locations only, not residences. At the low end of the price spectrum are business Cable broadband connections which are shared bandwidth and asymmetrical. They give you a high maximum download speed, but that speed varies all over the place since the bandwidth is shared among many users. Download speeds are 10x or so upload speeds, specifically intended for Web surfing, email, and watching online video.

Ethernet over Copper and Ethernet over Fiber Internet Service works more like traditional telecom lines. The bandwidth is symmetrical so that upload and download speeds are the same. You also get the bandwidth you order since it is dedicated to your use only and doesn’t depend on what other users are doing.

Ethernet over Copper uses the same twisted pair copper telco wiring that you use now for multi-line telephone and T1 lines. That’s makes construction costs negligible in many cases. Line speeds are available from 1 Mbps on up to 100 Mbps or more, depending on how far you are from the central office where your wiring connects. Up to 8 copper pair may be used to deliver the higher bandwidths.

Ethernet over Fiber requires a fiber optic line, but it delivers much higher bandwidths. With EoF, you can easily get Fast Ethernet at 100 Mbps and Gigabit Ethernet at 1000 Mbps. In some cases 10GigE is also available for large enterprise applications.

Can you get twice the bandwidth for the same money as you pay now by switching to Ethernet Internet Service for business? Check the speeds, prices and availability and compare with your current Internet service.
