A T1 connection brings a whole new level of speed when it comes to surfing the Internet. While a normal connection transmits data at around 30 kilobits per second, a T1 provider transmits data at over 1.54 megabits per second.
Mostly used by companies, T1 connections can also be extremely expensive. A T1 line isn’t recommended for home use, as it’s built to be able to handle several hundred simultaneous Internet surfers. In addition to Internet use, a T1 connection can carry up to 24 voice channels for telephone use.
