10 Meg (10 Mbps internet) providers

The Evolution of Business Internet: Discovering What a 10 Meg can do for your business

Clients requiring bigger bandwidth connections were forced to utilize asynchronous cable connections from providers such as Comcast and Cox, where upload and download speeds varied; thus, not providing guaranteed up / down speeds. More and more businesses started sending more real-time communication over these connections as well as relying on cloud applications to run their businesses; thus, service providers needed to find creative ways to inject high volumes of bandwidth to clients without incurring huge build out costs. Fiber mediums are an expensive undertaking and if a location and/or building is not currently lit with fiber then someone needs to fall on the sword and pay the providers a facility or build out cost.

Service providers started bundling T1 circuits together to deliver higher bandwidth to businesses without introducing a high build out cost that clients would need to absorb. T1 internet Providers would utilize the old copper network to provide faster bandwidth to clients. 10 Meg was introduced where multiple T1s were bundled together and then terminated to a single provider termination point such as a router that was capable of handling sufficient T1s.

Clients then accessed these connections via a 10/100 Ethernet handoff plugged into the clients firewall. If one of the T1s were to fail on the copper network, clients would suffer a decrease in bandwidth. Provider networks that connect via copper mediums are more likely to fail due to the age of copper connections as well as the more outdated legacy equipment. However, this became an easy methodology to provide clients with access to guaranteed up/down bandwidth at high speeds. Clients could get upload and download speeds of 10 Mbps versus less expensive cable connections that providers gave up to amounts such as up to 50 download and 10 upload. The popularity of IP technology as well as cloud applications drove providers to develop less expensive means of bandwidth.

Service providers are successfully providing voice services over 10 Meg connections as it's a guaranteed connection. Thus, providers may provide another onsite device that convert voice services over to POTS or voice PRI handoff or simply can ride SIP trunks over these connections effectively without compromising quality.

With the onset of 10 Meg solutions, original cable providers such as Comcast and Cox started to develop more guaranteed solutions over fiber that provide large access to bandwidth for a larger cost. Providers have stopped investing in older cable and copper technologies; if you haven't performed a review on your connectivity we can help. Increase business productivity and connectivity reliability by switching to 10 Mbps Internet today.
