How fast is a DS3?
Up to 45 mbps. While a DS3 will always incorporate a full 45 Mbps access loop, a typical deployment of a DS3 rarely begins at 45 mbps. Most corporations expanding beyond the limits of their T1 line and NxT1 service opt to make the jump to fractional DS3 with speeds of 6 to 9 Mbps. The draw to DS3 is in its scalability. Growth to full 45 Mbps can occur at a pace the corporation is comfortable with.
What is the cost of a DS3 line?
The price of a DS3 depends on multiple factors:
- How much speed do you require?
- Do you need a full DS3 or a fractional DS3?
- How close is your business to an Internet gateway
While a precise estimate depends on several variables, you might expect to pay between $1100 - $4000. The best way to determine cost is to connect with a Bandwidth Expert. Find out if DS3 service is available your area.
