Re: better then duct tape

Why 7 T1's?

for that cost I'd expect a T3 to be considered.

Because of the build out that would have to be done. I was trying to go for fiber to the the building because i'm not a fan of that many bonded T's. The cost was the determining factor. If i remember correctly it was ~2 grand a month difference. I guess Windstream just signed a contract with AT&T for fiber build out were those T's are being installed at so its only a matter of time before i convert those T1's over to fiber.

AT&T owns pretty much all of the last mile everywhere in ohio except a few locations. So getting them to update there dated copper lines usually never happens unless you pay the inflated rate.

8 T1s is much cheaper than a DS3/T3 by at least half the price. In most places you can get 8 T1s in a couple of weeks where it would be months for a DS3 or T3. Even a Metro E product will take around 90 days to install.
