The thing with t1/t3 is not the speed. Its the quality of the line as someone mentioned. I have 3/768 dsl, which in fact is faster than a t1 on download, but my pings are horrible compared to it. My first hop is 30 MS and if i ping a server here in NY i get 31 ping. If I had a t1 id probabily get results between 1-5 MS.Why? Because my line is shared throughtout many people. A t1/t3 is usually shared between much less people than my dsl line. Go to a library, and download a file, see how long it takes you to actually get to the download page with all the ping spikes, and then actually download the file, i guarantee you you will get 200kbps atleast even though the page could take 1-5 minutes to load. A t1 line is usually used for servers, not like microsoft's server but for example a CS or small web server. When running a multiplayer game server, some servers limit the amount of ping you are allowed to get in order to stop lag. I mean running my server ristricting anyone's ping to be lower than 30 (which is a good ping while in a game, anything higher causes lag) would be insane if my next door neighbor would get higher than 30. But on a t1 you can limit it it wont cause any problems. A t1 runs at 1.544 both up/down. Anything higher than that is in fact a fractional (i think thats the word they use) t3 line.Fractional meaning you get only a portion of the 45 mbps cap.

Think about FIOS for a second. 15/2mbps for $45 a month, but its shared. That one is faster than a t1 while t1 costs sometimes 10 times that.
