T1 line

I'm trying to find out if a Full T1 line should be or could be as fast or faster than a home dsl connection. The company I work for has a full T1 line. I was told by our provider that we are using very little of our T1 line's band width. When I connect at home my connection is quicker than at work. I thought a T1 line would be quicker or just as quick as any home connection. Should I research to see why our T1 is slower than my home connection?

Or is this normal.

Thanks

Re: T1 line

Depending on the router, you can look at metrics on the T1 connection to determine if it truely is saturated or not.

One thing that may assist you is to do ping tests to determine latency and/or packet loss. If your router isn't showing errors and its not pushing your T1s capacity and you're getting packet loss and/or high latency from your T1 carrier... you may want to confront them with the data.

It may be that your DSL provider is more *reliable* than your T1 provider... not necessarily more bandwidth.
