As a fall back on a T1, you might be better off with ADSL. Cable modems are very fast on the download side. Aproaching 4.5 meg (in MY experience). But the upload (outbound) is only in the 256k area. For home use, this is not a problem. So to replace a T1 that has servers on it, it might be a big restriction on your bandwidth. With DSL, and some providers, you can get 1meg+ both up and down. Of course, if your DSL happens to be down when your T1 crashes, you don't have any benefit. And they are probably both going thru the same CO over the same bundle of copper/fiber. Another issue might be that Cable companies are used to dealing with consumers. Your needs as a business are a lot different. Some DSL providers do have experience with buisness's.
