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!"

Why is Metro Ethernet Important to Woodlawn Maryland Businesses?

When Woodlawn Maryland businesses connect to the Internet, they are in essence accessing the ISP's network by way of a Local Loop provided by the Local Phone Company, as illustrated below:

Regular SONET

"Regular" (or SONET) connections include DS1, (T1), Bonded DS1, DS3 (T3), Frame Relay, and OCX. Each service actually requires the cooperation of the two companies between you and the Internet (the Local Phone Company and your ISP). Having two companies in between you and the Internet adds cost to the equation, not to mention multiple points of failure.

Connecting directly to your ISP is obviously ideal in that it reduces cost and increases the amount of speed your ISP can provide. Ethernet technology allows business to "plug" directly in to their ISP of choice providing that the customer is within a close physical proximity to the ISP's access point, or what we call "Lit Building". Using Ethernet, your connection to the Internet will look like this:

Ethernet Connection

Ethernet technology makes it possible for businesses who reside close to the physical Lit Buildings of ISPs to hop directly on to their networks. The ISP is then able to control the quality of the customer's LAN connection to the outside world, or to other points within the network.

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.

How is this tool valuable?

The GeoQuote Ethernet locator is valuable for people or business who are looking to:
  • substantially upgrade their current broadband connections.
  • 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.
  • move into a building with existing carrier facilities.
  • gather information that will be helpful in the planning stages of broadband deployment for a new real-estate development.
