What is the maximum capacity of a t1 line?

A T1 line plugs into your network's router and has 24 channels. Each channel is capable of a maximum speed of 64Kbs. That means you can expect T1 to carry data at 1.5 Mbps (upload and download). A T3 line is faster, at about 43 megabits per second.

Just so, how many users can a t1 line support?

A: A T1 is a symmetrical connection, allowing for downloads and uploads of up to 1.5 Mbps – 30 times as fast as 56k dial-up. A single T1 connection can support dozens to hundreds of users, but speed and efficiency drops as more people use it simultaneously.

Beside above, how much does a dedicated t1 line cost? T1 lines cost about $200/month or ~$130/(Mbps. Month) but the same monthly rate can get you a symmetric 10Mbps dedicated business Ethernet package which translates to $20/(Mbps.

Secondly, how many megabytes is a t1 line?

5 Answers. By definition, a T1 provides 1.544 Mbps, full duplex. (The equivalent European specification is the E1, which provides 2.048 Mbps.) However, it is divided into 24 channels, and they can be aggregated in any number, so you can get a "partial" T1 in many different bandwidths.

Are t1 lines obsolete?

T1 is not obsolete, but its not viable for most businesses primary connection due to the low speeds. It's great for a voice circuit or failover internet though.
