    Work with a prop firm that uses a private t-1 line for entering orders. Have come across an opportunity to work close to home by leasing space next to a web hosting company. They are offering me t-3 access for $50/mo. Does anyone know if entering orders through a t-3 internet connection is as reliable and as fast as the t-1 point to point connection? What about receiving internet quotes via the t-3? As fast as via satellite?
  2. If its truely a T3 (28 t1's), and not a fractional t3, then that would provide a very fast connection. Would it be faster then a t1 pt-pt, I guess that all depends on traffic thru each router/gateway, and net traffic in general.
  3. That is impressive if true. See if they will let you ping your broker to see how many hops you will have.
