Do you have the best Business Internet?
eTop Technology, Inc. has helped many companies get faster business class fiber internet when they had previously thought it wasn’t an option. When a company decides to explore the internet options that are available at their location they turn to eTop Technology, Inc. to help them find the answers.
At eTop Technology, Inc. we help our clients by getting a competitive quote through all of the internet service providers (ISP) that can offer services at their location. What makes our service different is that we are able to connect clients with providers who will install fiber internet where it did not previously exist. Large internet service providers will install fiber routes in industrial areas and they rely on companies like ours to help them distribute it to the individual businesses.
Once our client is ready to move forward with the best internet option for their business, we provide the contract to the chosen ISP. From that point the ISP is responsible for all installation from the main fiber route to your business. The advantage that our clients enjoy is that they do not pay unless service can be provided and they are ensured a competitive rate since the quote is drawn from a large base of ISP’s.
Dial-up – is a form of internet that uses the Public Switch Telephone Network (PSTN) to establish a dialed connection to an Internet Service Provider (ISP). Dial up uses dedicated telephone landlines and has an average rate of 56 KB/s. Dial up is the slowest type of internet and is on its way to being obsolete. It is, however, still used in rural areas where other types of internet are not yet available. The advantage of Dial up is that it is accessible anywhere there is an established phone line.
DSL – is the beginning of the broadband (high speed) internet connection. DSL stands for Digital Subscriber Line. Like Dial up, it connects you to your ISP using the established phone lines. The major difference between Dial up and DSL is it allows you to talk on the phone and use the internet at the same time. DSL uses the higher frequency bands while still allowing for the mid-level (audible) bands to be used for voice phone calls. The average rate for DSL is 8Mb/s, however, if your connection is run over a distance of 1.2 miles or more it will significantly reduce the bandwidth.
T1/T2/T3 – T lines are dedicated lines set up by a telecom company between the remote site and the network backbone. T lines are commonly used by companies to connect corporate offices to separate locations for private voice and data networking. T lines are far more expensive than traditional broadband connections and the higher the T number the more expensive they are. T lines average in speed of 1.544 Mbps for T1, 6.312 for T2 and 44.376 for T3 line. The advantage of a T line is that it is highly reliable however it is usually too expensive unless it is used for business purposes.
Cable – is a form of transmission that uses television lines to connect to the internet. Cable uses a modem to convert analog data signals into digital form and vice versa. The transmission rates fluctuate because cable is shared among multiple tenants. Due to this, internet speed can vary by the number of people using the connection at the same time.
Fiber – is a form of transmission that uses light over an optical network. Although you still connect your computer through a copper wire, the connection provides higher speeds than DSL or Cable because the network can travel at the speed of light.
