wow So when will they stop offering businesses bonded t-1's instead of direct fiber?
At work we went to get a quote and they offered us bonded t1's when lightpath and long island fiber offered us 20/20 fiber and 100/100 fiber. The sad part is we have a direct fiber line right to verizons co and they still offered only bonded t-1's.
Your "direct line" may be part of a loop (OCx) and may be at capacity. If you couldn't get VZ to offer you a drop off of that then its at capacity or your not talking to the right person.
