Virtual Private Network Information and Pricing

A Virtual Private Network allows your employees and remote office locations to work together, sharing files, printers, and other data - just as if you were all in one office - even though you are separated by many miles. All of this is done securely by encrypting your communications as they are transmitted over either private, leased communication lines (provided and managed by the ISP), though the public Internet or a mixture of both.

  • IP VPN - a type of VPN that uses the public Internet to connect users instead of using more costly private, leased communications lines.
  • MPLS VPN - This VPN uses MultiProtocol Label Switching for increased performance. MPLS adds a short fixed-length label that acts as a shorthand representation of an IP packet's header. Subsequent routing decisions (made by Label Switched routers) are made based on the MPLS label and not the original IP address. This allows core network routers to operate at higher speeds without needing to examine each packet in detail resulting in a faster and higher quality VPN.
  • VPN Connectivity - A VPN connection will run though almost any Internet connection such as dial up, wireless, satellite, DSL, T1, T3, etc. A slow or mixed-quality Internet connection like dial up, wireless or satellite make cause VPN disconnections so it is recommended to use DSL or better service when available.  Get VPN and VPN connectivity information >>

Fractional vs. Full T1 Prices

There isn't much of a cost difference between a fractional T1 and a full (1.5 Mbps) T1.   Why?  Well, so we can better understand, let's start by taking a peak at the specific costs of delivering T1 service.

The fractional T1 service providers have two costs associated with your T1 - the "local loop" and the
"port".  The local phone company provides and installs the local loop.  The T1 provider supplies the "port" which is connection between the local loop and the Internet (or PSTN if you're using phone service with your T1).

The cost of your local loop is the same - irregardless if it's a full T1 or fractional T1 loop because the local phone company always sets the local loop a 1.54 Mbps. Why?  Because it takes the same amount of copper wires and other equipment to run a fractional T1 as it does a full T1.  The local phone company views all T1 users as "full T1" users no matter if they are full, or fractional T1's.  And of course, the local phone company charges your T1 provider the same cost as well!  Since there are no cost savings for the T1 provider or the local phone company on a local loop, the end user customer doesn't get any cost cutting here either.

The cost of the port has two parts - the equipment and the bandwidth charges.  The equipment is just like the local loop.  The amount of time required to install and maintain the fractional T1 port equipment is the same as required for a full T1 port.  No cost savings on equipment.

Finally we get to the cost savings - the bandwidth charges.  For the T1 provider, bandwidth charges make up probably about 10% of the total cost of providing a T1.  Surprisingly most of the expense in providing T1 services is in getting them installed, paying the local phone company for the local loops, and the ongoing support, billing and other day-to-day maintenance expenses. 

Fractional T1 providers are willing to discount fractional T1 services only slightly because it only costs them slightly less to offer the fractional T1 instead of the full T1!  Except for bandwidth expenses, the T1 providers' cost of offering fractional and full T1 service is nearly the same.

“I have picked a provider and they will have me up and running quickly. Your web page took a lot of the trouble out of hunting for a provider.   I have opened many branch offices for my company (in the past), and will use T1 Shopper for any in the future.   This cut the process of finding providers, getting quotes, and making the decision on who to use, down to one week.   It was very painless.”

“Thanks!”
