Comcast to Start Charging for IP’s
Starting on October 1st, Integra will be integrating bandwidth reporting tools into their IntegraCare online customer portal.
The Network Utilization Monitoring tool will be available with any and all Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) circuits such as; T1, Bonded T1, EoTDM, EoC, and EoF services.
Integra's DIA services start as low as $399 for 10Mb Business Connect Bundle that includes 6 voice channels, 2000 min of LD, web hosting, email, conference calling and 8 Static IPs.
Telecom consulting and brokerage company, Caisson uses MPLS and high bandwidth EoC to help Taphandles LLC, a Seattle-based fully integrated beer marketing company serve more beer! Specifically, Caisson helped Taphandles utilizes EoC’s scalability to quickly double bandwidth, improving remote location server access.
Heard on the street: XO's SLA on Spectrum Wireless is the same as wireline, since they own/manage the spectrum it rides on.
XO may be able to get closer to 2K if you're ready to commit to signing at that rate, but XO finance would need to be involved as well as building management for access rights.
New customers can receive one month free on a 24 or 36 month term with any of the following DIA products at standard pricing
- T1: 1.5 Mpbs Dedicated Internet Access
- EoC: 5, 10, 15, 20 or 30 Mbps Dedicated Internet Access
- ICB: IP-60712-093012-S

Comcast Business sells a ton of bandwidth for a very low price. That is their market position. Their Business Cable service is not being sold on reliability or service. That is one of the main reasons my preferred partnership is with Integra Telecom. Being locally run in every market that they opperate provides them with an advantage when it comes to customer can and support for partners and customers.
Cable and DSL services are the least expensive and least reliable products on the bandwidth spectrum. By sharing the Internet Access over a large number of customers and by managing the up time on a "best effort basis" they can provide lots of bandwidth for not a lot of money. For business that don't have heavy implication costs associated with "Downtime" this is a great solution. But as soon as business needs require guaranteed service levels of 99.999%, two hour mean time of repair, controlled jitter and latency, and symmetrical bandwidth customers move into the Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) products. All DIA products are sold with Service Level Agreements (SLA's).
