said by DataRiker:Depends on how willing your company is to go without connectivity when the SOHO line goes down. Depends on how willing they are to put up with a slow response to outages, no SLA, and no promise of actual speeds delivered. There's a reason why a lot of outfits stick with T-1s despite being able to obtain much greater speeds at a much lower cost from competing DSL/cable offerings. Dedicated links are expensive for a reason.
$900+ a month vs $120 a month is an easy choice.
TWC's fiber/metro area ethernet products are pretty slick. More impressive than the bandwidth is the latency, one of my customers has five offices scattered across 120 miles of Upstate NY. They get 2-3ms ping times across their point to point links, nearly as good as a wired LAN, and on par with WLANs.
There isn't a SOHO connection in existence that will match that, not even to the first hop, let alone across a VPN to a remote office.
