A T1 line is a dedicated phone connection supporting data rates of 1.544 Mbits per second. A T-1 line actually consists of 24 individual channels, each of these channels supports 64 Kbits per second. Each 64Kbit per second channel can be configured to carry data or voice transmissions. Many telephone companies will allow you to buy just some of these individual channels, known as fractional T-1 access. T-1 lines are a popular leased line option for businesses connecting to the Internet and for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) connecting to the Internet backbone. The Internet backbone itself consists of faster T-3 line connections. A T1 line is also a great solution for business that have more than 20 employees using the internet or businesses that utilize significant voice and data applications.
T1 lines are sometimes referred to as DS1 lines.
