    come T1 is so expensive if its slower than DSL and Cable?

    oh yeah and i got that SBC DSL for 25 a month and its 1.5mbit.. cheaper than charter for 50 plus 5 for modem rental for 3 mbit, i think...

    and how the fuck did u get 5mbit for 20 bucks???

    I got comcast at my house.

    Time Warner at my office.

    Comcast connection is way faster than TW, normally I upload or whatever the hell it is at 4-500 kb/s.

    a t1 is commercial grade. a cable line is residential grade.

    the cable will be faster, but the t1 will be more reliable.
