Re: frame relay

Depending on where you are, FR Access speed limit is 2048Kb/s (E1) or 1544Kb/s (T1) configured on Serial interface only. Your service provider can give you anything below that. If you need more then ATM or L2 Metro Ethernet (which you can apply to ethernet)would be better choice.

Re: frame relay

Hello,

high speed frame relay service is indeed available from certain providers (e.g. MCI). Have a look at the link below, which contains a sample contract (scroll dwon to somewhere halfway down the page, it lists the different Frame Relay speeds offered, and the respective prices):
