"Selecting a provider was simple because the work was already done for us. We're saving more than we thought we could thanks to ShopForOCx.com."
"We found ShopForOCx.com via a Web Search in Google while shopping for reliable/competitive T-1 lines. Adam Edwards, a ShopForOCx.com consultant, asked me questions without selling anything and then delivered an array of options with pros and cons for each. I've dealt with many types of vendors as a "decision maker" for multiple companies and ShopForOCx.com is a model for success. Needless to say we are in the process of converting all of our data lines throughout the country with the help of ShopForOCx.com."
"ShopForOCx.com provided us with multiple options allowing us to compare quotes and select the best service for our needs. We were also pleased with the post-sales support ShopForOCx.com gave us when we needed help getting our rebates and coordinating our provisioning."
"The nature of our business demands a reliable T1 service. ShopForOCx.com helped us find aTier 1 service provider and negotiated a lower price than the vendor would have given to us if we went direct.
"We found ShopForOCx.com to be a very convenient and cost effective way to find new Voice and Data Service. Within 1-2 seconds there were quotes from 5-6 different providers. The ShopForOCx.com folks were very helpful in explaining the pros and cons of the different services they were representing."

T1 Internet Access for Dummies
Written by: Patrick Oborn - Apr 23, 2021
The t1 internet service has been around for over 40 years but never have there been so many "flavors" available. The number of providers has jumped since deregulation in 1996 from a few dozen to several thousand. As the telecom shakedown that began in 2001 continues many of these companies are trying to stay afloat by capturing as many customers as possible with inexpensive products they claim to be T1. Don't be fooled!
Many of the desperate companies are putting together inferior products they claim are T1 products. Be leery of products with the funny titles like "burstable" and "reach". These products are oversubscribed much like a DSL product. This means the provider puts a singled T1 connection in a CO (Central Office) and sells T1 connections to 3 or 4 customers hoping they don't all use the service at the same time. True T1 access means dedicated access to the internet and you always have access to 1.54Mbps.
Make sure your T1 product is a "clearchannel" product and is not shared with other users. Also be sure you have an SLA or Service Level Agreement from your provider. A SLA will specify the access you will receive and the penalty the service provider will pay if they do not provide such service. If you need help establishing the proper SLA seek the help of a professional if you don't have one in house. It's much better to pay a small fee up front than to enter a long term contract with an inferior carrier. You can also get professional assistance free of charge by simply contacting one of the many T1 brokers on the internet.
