GigE price quotes are established by several factors such as the distance between the telecom provider’s central office (CO) and the business location where the bandwidth is needed. Another factor in determining GigE price quotes is the amount of competition from the various telecom providers that serve the business location requiring the bandwidth. If there are several telecom providers that serve a location, prices will be more competitive for that location. A major component in determining availability of Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) is the distance between the business location and the nearest fiber-fed telecom CO.

Gigabit Ethernet can be used for facilitating a wide variety of IT applications including internet connections, VoIP, MPLS networks, point-to-point circuits, data and/or video streaming and web hosting. GigE is available in most major cities and is also available as burstable Gigabit Ethernet. Burstable GigE are available in speeds ranging from 100 mbps up to 1000 mbps. Fractional GigE is available in the same bandwidth increments. Burstable GigE allows a business to pay for only the amount of bandwidth used while having access to a full 1000 mbps during periods of higher bandwidth usage.
