In Their Own Words:

"I ready an article a few months ago about Ethernet supplanting T1/DS3 services in the commercial high speed Internet market. The problem is, there isn't a way for a company to find out if Ethernet is available in their building without a web site such as ShopforEthernet.com. The site is easy to use, doesn't force me to enter in my contact information to see availability, and the consultant who contacted me (at my request) was very courteous and professional. I recommend this site to anyone looking for fast Ethernet broadband services."

How is this tool valuable?

The GeoQuote Ethernet locator is valuable for people or business who are looking to:
  • find a carrier who provides QoS (Quality of Service) guarantees. Since the carrier you select is in complete control of your connection, it is much easier for them to provide QoS.
  • substantially upgrade their current broadband connections.
  • gather information that will be helpful in the planning stages of broadband deployment for a new real-estate development.
  • move into a building with existing carrier facilities.
  • establish a direct relationship with a provider without the local Bell in the equation.

Why is Metro Ethernet Important to Abilene Texas Businesses?

"Regular" connections include T1, DSL, Bonded DS1, T3, OCX and Frame Relay. Each service requires the Local Phone Company and your ISP to connect you and the Internet. That adds extra expense to the equation and increases the possiblity of multiple points of failure, as illustrated below:

Regular SONET

By using Ethernet technology, a Abilene Texas business is able to "plug" directyl in to its Internet service provider. It reduces costs and increases the amount of speed the ISP can provide. The connection will look like this:
