In Their Own Words:

"My business is very unique, but very bandwidth intensive. Ordering another T1 just wasn't in the budget and my customers were starting to leave because our bandwidth wasn't allowing our product to run at the speed we promised. With the help of ShopforEthernet.com I was able to learn about the benefits of Ethernet and how I could get a 10MB connection for just $1000 (the combined cost of my two current T1 lines). Since my current contract was about to expire I was able to upgrade to 10MB and I pay the exact same as I used to. My controller is happy and so are my customers. Thank you for providing this valuable service!"

How does this tool work?
  1. Enter your street address in the form above.
  2. A map with your location and markers will be displayed. The markers tell you the surrounding buildings which have been "lit" by some major telecom service providers, such as XO, Level 3 and Telnes.
  3. If you enter your contact information, our staff of Ethernet service experts will contact you about the service you are interested in.

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.

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.


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.
