Question OT: Business ISP?

My father and I are looking for a fast connection for his business (that has multiple email accts.), and we recently were told we couldn't get dsl in our area. What would be the next best connection?

I've heard that the bandwidth gets split with anyone in the same region, is that true?

Yep...bandwidth gets shared on a Cable Modem...but only in extreme circumstances will it be "slow".

Are you looking at hosting a web site or sites at your location or just some kind of dialup?

If it's just to surf the web and get e-mail, cable modem would do just fine.

Edit: Oh yeah, one more thing....check out http://www.dslreports.com for any info on DSL providers.

We're just gonna do email and internet access for about 10 people. They won't all be connected at the same time, mainly 3 people will be connected always and the other employees will use it to check email.
-Thanks for the help!

Fractional T1's are pretty cheap these days. Would probably save you money over a bunch of dial-ups.

If you can, go cable. Call MediaOne or AT&T and see what they say. Other then that, if you're just using it for access go DSL or dual-ISDN (kinda slow, but for 3 people it should be semi-decent). If worse comes to worse, fractional T1's wouldn't be bad like ChimChim said, but might be $300-400 or so per month.

They have Cable hubs that can get hooked up to the incoming cable line to share the internet access.

Most cable modems are external units that get connected to your run-of-the-mill 10/100 NIC cards.

All you need is that Cable modem/Hub to distribute/hook-up to your network.

I wonder if you can just hook up the cable modem to your net hub/firewall.

Just one thing, if you use a cable modem/service (edit: or any incoming network connectivity for that matter...DSL/T1/Cable, etc...) in a networked business environment, you're going to want to purchase some kind of firewall to protect yourself from hacks.

We've got a full blown 1.544Mbps T1 fiber line dropped directly into the basement for our Web hosting business. $952/month (telco and bandwidth combined), $2.5k installation and $2.5k for the Cisco 2611 router and DSU/CSU. Hefty price tag because DSL wasn't available in our area.

Then again, if you get a T1, expect to learn a LOT about systems administration.

Andy, I'm very pleased with AT&T @home cable modem.

T1 is a waste of money, for the average user wont need that kind of bandwidth. I've been on a oc-3 before and let me tell you it feels just like the cable modem i have at home.

However, I'd get DSL if I personally had a choice, for cable's speed varies throughout the day, because the elephant hub is linked throughout the neighborhood.
This also poses a security threat for ethernet/CM232 packet sniffing. Although most people don't even bother with that.

Don't forget to order extra IP addy's if you go with the cable modem. Each machine needs its own IP address for a cable modem, and yes be careful cause cable modem users in the same area use the same lines, so its dedicated access, but not dedicated to just you.

I have an 8 port ethernet hub, and have the cable modem connected to it with a crossover cable. With three IP addresses, I can have all three computers at home on the internet (kids Mac, Wife's iBook, and my Winbook).

Speed is great, only rare slowdowns.
