In Their Own Words:

"Little did I know that gigabit Ethernet was available here in Chapel Hill, well, at least in my building anyway. After seeing the little pink "marker" on my building on the map, I requested more information from ShopforEthernet.com. In less than 5 minutes I was on the phone talking to a live human being who was able to contact the carrier and have an official quote on my desk the next business day. You're not going to find this kind of service or value anywhere else. I know. I've looked!"

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.


How is this tool valuable?

The GeoQuote Ethernet locator is valuable for people or business who are looking to:
  • 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.
  • establish a direct relationship with a provider without the local Bell in the equation.
  • 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.

Why is Metro Ethernet Important to Chapel Hill North Carolina 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 Chapel Hill North Carolina 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:
