T1 vs. DSL: What's the difference?
T1 lines come with a higher service level agreeement (SLA) -- four hours versus 24 hours for most DSL lines. In a business critical environment, being down for an entire day can be disastrous.
T1 technology does not run on top of your existing phone lines as do most types of DSL.
T1 speeds are not limited by distance to the central office. For DSL, the further you are away from the central office, the slower your speeds will be. T1 speeds are guaranteed.
T1 upstream speed is faster than DSL. Having fast upstream speed is great for offices that run their own internet services (e.g., web servers, e-mail servers, VoIP, etc).
