1.5 Mbps to 45 Mbps
Home Telecom Business Solutions offers a lower-speed version of Metro Ethernet. Mid-band Ethernet provides access at rates between T-1 (1.5 Mbps) and a full 45 Mbps, deployed over copper.
Many businesses need Metro Ethernet, but do not have fiber connectivity. Mid-band Ethernet extends the reach of Metro Ethernet services to small and mid-sized businesses beyond the fiber footprint. By bonding multiple POTS-grade copper pairs into a single Ethernet link, speeds of up to 45 Mbps can be achieved.
Mid-band Ethernet provides the same services as Metro Ethernet, but at lower speeds. In addition to higher rates, Mid-band Ethernet over bonded copper provides higher resiliency — the failure of one pair does not take the connection out of service.
