In Their Own Words:

"Until one week ago I didn't even know what a metro Ethernet connection was. A telecommunications publication mentioned how it was going to drastically reduce the price per meg to businesses who qualified for service (IE: who were lucky enough to reside in a "Lit Building"). Not knowing if my building here in Abilene had Ethernet available in it, I found ShopforEthernet.com through Google. After a few minutes I was pleasantly surprised to learn that it was available, and the knowledgeable consultant who contacted me was able to help me place my order which should be installed next week. Thanks for all your help."

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:

Is this lookup tool free?

Yes. We do not require that you pay a fee to access this information - however, we do require that you purchase service through us if you decide to buy. We are compensated from the participating carriers when you order through us, which pays for the development and maintenance of this web site.

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.
  • establish a direct relationship with a provider without the local Bell in the equation.
  • move into a building with existing carrier facilities.
  • 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.

Can I order Ethernet service online?

Not yet. Even if our Metro Ethernet lookup tool shows you are in an On-Net building, we must still go through a manual check on both pricing and service availability. However, know that our Ethernet Experts are here to assist you with every step of the process.
