Basic Leased Lines Question

Basic Leased Lines Question

Basic Leased Lines Question

I have a small network over a large area (some places have only one computer that I need to connect).  Is it possible to lease lines from a phone company and plug these lines straight into a hub so that I can get connectivity between sites??

Are the leased lines like a physical cable connecting to points or is it a dial up type connection??

Any comments would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance


RE: Basic Leased Lines Question

There are different types of lines you can purchase depending on your budget and purpose and need for security.

You can get a point to point T-1(1.4M) which is about $1500/month. or Fractional that varies with bandwidth.

If you want to Keep cost down and still maintain speed consider DSL [which is hell to get in and is a pain] or cable(see if your provider offers static IP). You can create a VPN tunnel and connect offices.
