Line upgrade, do I need a new T1 wic?

I currently have a 56k line going into my 1601 router with a 56k/64k csu/dsu wic card. I upgraded my line to a 64k but the service provider installed a frac T1 with channel 1 enabled.

Can I use my existing wic and set the bandwidth to 64000 or do I need a new T1 wic?

You need a T1 WIC.

Just wondering, why did you go to 64K? Why not 128K or 256K or T1?

It's a service office where 2-3 sporadic users access our telnet based app. and get their email. I mean by sporadic, 50% of the time.

It seems to me that the 56K should be just fine. You gain very little going to a 64K (8K). I hate to say it, but it looks like you are spending a lot of money to gain very little. Food for thought.

Thanks,

I don't call the shots, just implement them
