Metro Ethernet


Ethernet - Ethernet is the new T1 of 10 years ago.  Today, instead of buying a Internet T1 at 1.544mbps or bonded T1s, companies are buying Ethernet circuits from 2mbit/s up to several gigs of bandwidth speed.  Some forms of Ethernet are:

  • Opt-e-man
  • Gig Ethernet (Gig E)
  • Gigaman
  • Metro Ethernet
  • Ethernet over Copper
  • Ethernet over Fiber
  • Ethernet over DS1

Internet T1 pricing in metro areas can range from $300 to $400 a month for 1.544mbps.  That averages out to $150 to $200 per meg. Today, with Metro Ethernet, you can get 10mbps for $800 to $1000 a month.  Ethernet pricing per megabit averages out to be $80 to $100 per meg.   As we all become more and more dependent on a healthier and Faster internet connection, many companies are switching from Internet T1s or Bonded NXT1 services to Metro Ethernet service to considerably upgrade thier bandwidth speed and performance.
