"Selecting a provider was simple because the work was already done for us. We're saving more than we thought we could thanks to GeoQuote."
"We found GeoQuote via a Web Search in Google while shopping for reliable/competitive T-1 lines. Adam Edwards, a GeoQuote consultant, asked me questions without selling anything and then delivered an array of options with pros and cons for each. I've dealt with many types of vendors as a "decision maker" for multiple companies and GeoQuote is a model for success. Needless to say we are in the process of converting all of our data lines throughout the country with the help of GeoQuote."
"GeoQuote provided us with multiple options allowing us to compare quotes and select the best service for our needs. We were also pleased with the post-sales support GeoQuote gave us when we needed help getting our rebates and coordinating our provisioning."
"The nature of our business demands a reliable T1 service. GeoQuote helped us find aTier 1 service provider and negotiated a lower price than the vendor would have given to us if we went direct.
"We found GeoQuote to be a very convenient and cost effective way to find new Voice and Data Service. Within 1-2 seconds there were quotes from 5-6 different providers. The GeoQuote folks were very helpful in explaining the pros and cons of the different services they were representing."

DSL or T1? Which is Best for You?
Written by: Patrick Oborn - Jun 24, 2018
When is it time for a business to upgrade to a T1 line? There are several factors to consider when examining you current DSL connection and the possibility of replacing it. For many small businesses the biggest factor is reliability and the financial loss incurred in the event of lost connectivity. Many companies rely heavily on their high-speed internet to conduct their business with e-mail, video conference, and now for voice-over-internet telephony applications. An outage could take down all aspects of your business if you find yourself in the same situation.
In a practical sense, a T1 will deliver a bi-directional speed of 1.5 Mbps. A DSL line can deliver up to 3Mbps, but the speed is solely determined by your distance from the DSLAM (the telephone company's physical equipment box in your neighborhood). The maximum range of DSL is 18,000 feet, which is where the signal loss in the copper line is too great to transmit data reliably.
Another difference between a T1 and a DSL line is customer service. A T1 usually comes with a 99.999% update guarantee, which is accomplished by a 24/7 technical support department that monitors the entire network constantly. As soon as there is an outage the techs spring into action to begin diagnosing and rectifying the outage. With DSL service, you are very much on your own - leaving you with the responsibility to call customer service, wait your turn in the hold queue, and hopefully be connected with someone who can help you.
The last difference between a T1 and DSL line is price. DSL service usually runs between $19 and $79 per month, depending on the plan (residential vs. commercial, 512K vs. 3M, etc.) Just 5 years ago, the average price of a T1 line was $1000/month. Now T1 pricing is in the high $400's to low $700's per month, making it a much more attractive option to small businesses and even gamers. All things considered, a $500 T1 line can be considered as a 'productivity insurance' policy, ensuring your employees, your phone calls, and your email always keep working like they should.
