Multi-Link Broadband

For years, high speed data circuits known as T1 leased-lines from the telephone company have been the standard when it comes to reliability and throughput for mission critical voice and data applications. Although fast and reliable, T1 leased-lines are a costly option.

Recently, Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) technology and cable modem access have become a lower cost alternative to T1 leased-lines but suffer from slower upload speeds and a lack of scalability. While a T1 leased-line offers symmetrical bandwidth of 1.5 Mb in both the upstream and downstream directions, DSL is asymmetrical and typically offers less than 1 Megabit in the upstream direction while providing from 1.5 to 7 Megabits in the downstream direction. The slower speed in the upstream direction greatly limits the speed at which a large file or email attachment can be transferred. was the first company in Southern Arizona to offer Multi-Link Broadband Service.

Multi-Link Broadband from is a revolutionary new way to deliver high speed Internet Access for high traffic venues such as hotels, schools, multi-tenant units (MTU), multi-dwelling units (MDU) and any business application with high bandwidth requirements or a large number of Internet users and where the cost of providing such a service on multiple T1 lines is cost prohibitive. If your location qualifies for DSL, you can get Multi-Link Broadband Service from

Multi-Link Broadband is a better solution when it comes to having the reliability and scalability needed for important business applications.
