I wouldn't do it. One of these guys showed up at my house one day too, offered what sounded like awesome internet, TV, and phone to my parents. Being completely uneducated about this sort of thing, they accepted. I'm supposed to have a 20 meg connection, yet I lag on on XBL, and "server could not be found" (or whatever FF says) is a common sight in my browser. f.ck AT&t. I'm still trying to convince them to go back to Charter.

No, he didn't smell like cabbage.

I wouldn't go for it. As far as I know, T1 is the method (which eventually effects the bandwidth) in which information is encoded in the line. If he said you're only getting T1, you're basically getting limited by that data rate. I don't really know what I'm talking about, so please be friendly about correcting me =).

Also, this makes it even more amazing to me how ridiculous the connection here at my school is. I download files anywhere from 2MB/s (megabytes) to 20MB/s and upload them at 37MB/s (this is only for mediafire...I have no idea why). Whenever I upload files to anywhere else, the speed is around 20Mbps (Megabits). The craziest thing is, the University of Florida is a huge school with a huge campus and a sh.tton of people using the internet here, yet I still get those speeds. I can basically download 4 things on 4 separate devices at 12MB/s, and still play halo with no lag at all (I have done this). Honestly, it's the best internet connection I have ever witnessed. Need proof?

On shared college internet, you very often find that your upload speed is far higher than your download speed. Of the plethora of bandwidth being used, download is obviously going to be higher than upload. And because they almost always have a symmetrical line (T3, OC3 or maybe OC12 if it's nearish to a city or a rich college), upload will be much less unused.

As for the OP, why the f..k would a police station need a direct connection to the node of an ISP? Even then, I highly doubt the line would go much faster than 1gbps (they might have multiple 1-gig lines, but even then, I don't think total bandwidth would surpass 10gbps). There is no such thing as unlimited bandwidth, there is always some chokepoint (either it's bad peering, your bandwidth cap, or bandwidth caps set by the server).

I don't know why they need it... but they have it.
I will talk to him again later and clarify.
