Network Data Solutions offers several different types of Internet Connections.

Our Internet Access Services provide a custom fit for each of our unique clients.  Below is a list of potential options that we can offer you.

  • VDSL – Very High DSL – Very High DSL (VDSL) is a DSL technology that offers fast data rates over relatively short distances — the shorter the distance, the faster the connection rate.
  • Cable – Broadband Internet Connection. Through the use of a cable modem you can have a broadband Internet connection that is designed to operate over cable TV lines.  Cable Internet works by using TV channel space for data transmission, with certain channels used for downstream transmission and other channels for upstream transmission.  Because the coaxial cable used by cable TV provides much greater bandwidth than telephone lines, a cable modem can be used to achieve extremely fast access.  Cable providers typically implement a cap to limit capacity and accommodate more customers.  Cable speeds range from 512 Kbps to 20 Mbps.


  • Satellite - Internet over Satellite(IoS) allows a user to access the Internet via a satellite that orbits the earth.  A satellite is placed at a static point above the earth’s surface in a fixed position.  Because of the enormous distances signals must travel from the earth up to the satellite and back again, IoS is slightly slower than high-speed terrestrial connections over copper or fiber optic cables.  Typical Internet over satellite connection speeds (standard IP services) average around 492 up to 512 Kbps.
  • Wireless Internet Connections - Wireless Internet or wireless broadband is one of the newest Internet connection types.  Instead of using telephone or cable networks for your Internet connection, you use radio frequency bands.  Wireless Internet provides an always-on connection which can be accessed from anywhere — as long as you geographically within a network coverage area.  Wireless access is still considered to be relatively new and it may be difficult to find a wireless service provider in some areas.  It is typically more expensive and mainly available in metropolitan areas.



  • T-1 Lines – Leased Line – 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.  It is a dedicated phone connection supporting data rates of 1.544 Mbps.  A T-1 line actually consists of 24 individual channels, each of which supports 64 Kbits per second.  Each 64Kbit/second channel can be configured to carry voice or data traffic.  Most telephone companies allow you to buy just one or some of these individual channels.  This is known as fractional T-1 access.  T-1 Lines support speeds of 1.544 Mbps.  Fractional T-1 speeds are 64 Kbps per channel (up to 1.544 Mbps), depending on number of leased channels.
  • Bonded T-1 A bonded T-1is two or more T-1 lines that have been joined (bonded) together to increase bandwidth.  Where a single T-1 provides approximately 1.5 Mbps, two bonded T1s provide 3Mbps or 46 channels for voice or data.  Two bonded T-1s allow you to use the full bandwidth of 3 Mbps where two individual T-1s can still only use a maximum of 1.5 Mbps at one time.  To be bonded the T-1 must run into the same router at the end, meaning they must run to the same ISP.  Typical Bonded T-1 (two bonded T-1 lines) speed is around 3 Mbps.
  • T-3 Lines – Dedicated Leased Line – T-3 lines are dedicated phone connections supporting data rates of about 43 to 45 Mbps.  It too is a popular leased line option.  A T-3 line actually consists of 672 individual channels, each of which supports 64 Kbps.  T-3 lines are used mainly by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) connecting to the Internet backbone and for the backbone itself.  Typical T-3 supports speeds ranging from 43 to 45 Mbps.
  • OC3 – Optical Carrier – Short for Optical Carrier, level 3 it is used to specify the speed of fiber optic networks conforming to the SONET standard.  OC3 is typically used as a fiber optic backbone for large networks with large voice, data, video and traffic needs.  Speeds are 155.52 Mbps, or roughly the speed of 100 T1 lines.
