Grow Your Broadband with a Business DS3 (T3).

T3 Line Providers (DS3) provide a highly-reliable solution for companies with high bandwidth demands to transfer large files, host video or  multiple websites or add high-quality voice services.  T3, or DS3, lines are also backed by Service Level Agreements that guarantee business performance.  A DS3 line can be increased incrementally, up to 45 Mbps, and gives businesses scalability that is rivaled only by Ethernet. As a business demands more and more bandwidth, growing companies most often get started with a fractional DS3 and expand to a full 45 Mbps. Most corporations expanding beyond the limits of their T1 line and NxT1 service opt into a fractional DS3 with speeds up to 6 – 9 Mbps, and scale as needed.

DS3 Pricing and Availability

Often, IT professionals deploy a DS3 line to create point-to-point, Internet, Frame relay, or voice and DS3 VPN connections. Pricing fluctuates based on the T3 line provider, local loop and port charges.  BandwidthPlace Business Consultants provide a no-cost service to evaluate your DS3 requirements and give you options for the best T3 Line Provider, plans, and pricing for your location.

Upside of T3 Line Providers:

  • Reliable, high-speed Internet with massive bandwidth.
  • Pro-active monitoring and maintenance service is standard.
  • Service Level Agreements (SLAs) ensure quality business performance.
  • Most DS3 services include professional installation and online management tools, plus 24/365 support.

Downside of T3 Line Providers:

  • A T3 can be expensive for a full 45 Mbps—so it makes sense to contract the exact bandwidth service you need, with the option of upgrading.
  • Ethernet may offer a better solution for scalability beyond 45 Mbps.
  • Pricing (loop charges) fluctuate based on distance from the edge of the carriers network.

A typical DS3 (T3 Line Providers) installation includes two technician visits

An expert technician will conduct two appointments to determine inside wiring needs and finally the installation:

  • Site survey appointment: Once an order has been booked, a technician will visit the site for cabling needs and CPE placement.
  • Installation appointment: A technician will perform needed wiring and installation.
