ISP Choices. Please Help

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
HI guys,
I work at this Internet Cafe/ Computer Repair in Toronto,

we have 2x ADSL Line with lots Static IP or whatever for over 5 years
and last couple of years they are nothign but trouble

very slow speed, switch creeping out, disconnection, ISP tech support didn't help much, or they dunno anything anyways etc etc,

anyways, max download speed is about 550k so it is slow anyways, not the mention the real slow times



now I dunno anything about networking, but i'm in charge of all tech stuff around here, so I need to convince boss to switch the ISP to something else

so guys, T1 or Cable,

please give me the advantage and disadvantage , thanks lots,

also, is it true u can combine 2 cable modems to make it real fast?

also, is LOTS static ips necessary? can I just get a good router to do private ip even tho it's business line for 30+ PCs?

please help thanks lots.

T1 is only like 1.5M even though that connection is completely unshared. I think thats slow when shared between mutliple users.

A fast cable connection would be the best bet. You can get a cable modem / router with dual WAN ports so you could effectively have 2 cable connections. The router would then load balance between the two but NOT combine the speeds.

Well if it stability/reliability you want T1 would be the way to go but the price is MUCH MUCH higher then cable. Cable will give you great burst speeds with many users on it.

A 10/10 ethernet means they will basically run a dedicated line for you with 10 meg up and down bandwidth. But this will be EXPENSIVE!. Its basically the new type of 'T' lines.

Well for what you will be doing i would think that a 10-15mb download and a 1-3mb upload would be fine. At my house we share a 15 Mbps down 3 Mbps upload we have normally 4-5 computers on it at all times and have no trouble at all. I game and still get no lags.

Dont really need extra IP addys, just use a router or some sort of DHCP server
