Bonded T1 Service

Bonded T1s (DS1) are two or more T1s that have been joined together to provide increased bandwidth and increased reliability. Since a full T1 is about 1.5Mbps, two bonded T1s will give a pipe of 3Mbps, 3 bonded T1s will give a pipe of 4.5Mbps, 4 bonded T1s will give a pipe of 6Mbps and so on. Bonded T1s can use either Cisco CEF or MPPP. All bonded T1s must run into the same routers at each end which means that they must run to the same ISP.

We are one of the few Internet providers in the Rockford area that offer bonded T1s. We guarantee up time and throughput on all of our T1 circuits. Although our T1 pricing is already competitive, we are so confident in our business model and superior connectivity that we will meet or beat any other vendors pricing on bonded T1s in the SBC coverage area of Rockford, Loves Park, and Machesney Park, Illinois.

The reliability and performance of your Internet feed depends highly upon the quality, competence, connectivity, and engineering of your ISP. That is why T1s will vary greatly among vendors. Although your local loop may be able to carry 1.5Mbps of data, many ISPs will not have the bandwidth to deliver that much data. We have seen low cost T1s sold as full-1.5Mbps that could not even deliver 768kbps. Most smaller ISPs will only have one or two T1s for their Internet backbone. With our fiber optic OC-3 connection to SBC, and our redundant licensed microwave link to AT&T, Rock River Internet can provide your business with fractional, burstable, shared, full, protected, or bonded T1 (DS1) service at lower costs than our competitors and with the reliability, service, and expert local support, that our customers have come to appreciate.

We have multi-homed DS-3 connections on diverse paths from the Internet backbone to our downtown Rockford NOC (Network Operations Center). We use redundant Cisco 7200 family core routers running HSRP for automatic failover and BGP4 routing protocol. Our network has fault tolerance that is unsurpassed in the Rockford area. We are not at the mercy of any one provider's stability and are engineered to run 24/7/365.

All of our dedicated connections include 24/7 monitoring for performance and connectivity and include back-up mail queuing at no additional charge.
