Ok i was able to get some ball park numbers..

This is all based off of T1 pricing..

T1(1.544Mbps)= $450 per month

OC-3(155Mbps)100xT1s = $45000

OC-12(622Mbps) 4xOC-3s = $135K

OC-48(2.5 Gbps) 4xOC-12s = $540K

OC-192 ( 9.6Gbps) 4xOC-48s= $2.16million

Again this is just rough guess.. OC-24 would be 2xOC12s.. so about $270K per month.. lol that would be one hell of a connection..

Just to put into perspective how fast that is..  You would need a PCI Fiber NIC..


The speed test would result in something around this range.. 155.5 MB/sec [Megabyte-per-second] Which is faster than than PCI v1.0.. So you would need PCI 2.0 which has a pipe of 533MB/s... That is for a OC-24..

Hope that helps a little bit.. one other thing.. this is not going to come in like cable.. you are going to have to have some pretty expensive routing equipment..

I am not sure how accurate that 17k i posted earlier is really correct.. OC-3 - 155 megabits per second (100 T1s) Ave. cost $20,000.-$45,000./mo.

How much would the loop cost on a t1 or so and how can the t1 be cheaper than the fractional t1(144/144) . What is up with that seriously is it a hidden charge or something

My guess is that it is cheaper to offer a full speed line through the co than it is to make it a fractional line.. take a look at this.. http://t1.covad.com/products/t1/t1.shtml

As far as the local loop cost.. I am not sure that there would be any.. My guess is that is covered in the monthly price.

a t1 isn't just 1.5mbps. you can split it up into 24 voice channels. or half and half or whatever the frag you want with. generally a copper based solution unless fiber is available, the signal is transported on 4 wires instead of the 2 for pots. there is also some pricey equipment needed on both sides (which the telecoms operator will recoup by you monthly fees. so if you think about it the price isn't that high considering you're hooking up 24 phone lines to where you get it.
