In Their Own Words:

"ShopforEthernet.com was recommended to me by the value added reseller who services my phone system when he overheard me complaining about the slowness of our web server which is hosted here in my office in Elon College. My server was fine, but our bonded T1 line that connects it to the Internet was saturating everyday during peak business hours. I didn't want to spend any more money that I am now on bandwidth, and was very happy to see that an Ethernet over copper connection from XO communications was able to allow me the ability to upgrade to 10MB without spending a penny more than I am now. Not only is the service cost effective, my connection is better quality."
