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 Reston. 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."

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.
  • gather information that will be helpful in the planning stages of broadband deployment for a new real-estate development.
  • substantially upgrade their current broadband connections.
  • 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 Reston Virginia 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 Reston Virginia 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:
