What is broadband?

The term “broadband” refers to advanced communications systems capable of providing high-speed transmission of services such as data, voice, and video over the Internet and other networks. Transmission is provided by a wide range of technologies, including digital subscriber line and fiber optic cable, coaxial cable, wireless technology, and satellite. Broadband platforms make possible the convergence of voice, video, and data services onto a single network.


So, what does that mean to the average person?

Think of broadband as a pipe, allowing access to the internet and/or a private network. There are no one size fits all when it comes to pipes and the application. Pipes vary in size and in medium. The average home user might only require a small pipe with very little monitoring.  Whereas, business users may require advanced routing or special applications. Typically these scenarios call for not only a larger pipe, but also a connection engineered specifically for mission critical, business applications.

Whether it is a small to medium business, large multi-office company, a group of teleworkers or SOHO client (Small Office/Home Office), they all need broadband internet access. At Key 2 IP, we can provide what is required in each of these scenarios. This is where we shine!  We work with most of the major Internet Service Providers across the US.  This gives us the ability to provide a “Progressive” style approach to pricing broadband solutions to our clients.  Supplying DSL through DS3 connections, Key 2 IP has you covered. We will assist you with determining the amount of bandwidth your company requires and provide the best solution for your needs.

We highly recommend our Priority Access T1 circuits which are specifically engineered for Key 2 IP VoIP applications. A T1 circuit gives you speeds of 1.54 Mbps of dedicated bandwidth. T1 connections can easily handle the demands of users accessing an increasingly fast pace of a data-centric world. T1’s provide constant data throughput for both up and down stream data traffic. T1s are at the core of MPLS and VoIP networks which allow businesses to connect all their locations into one seamless network for data, voice, and video. T1s have the flexibility to be used as individual connections, or they can be bundled together, as Bonded T1s, which provides cost-effective alternatives to other connections.
