The Internet is only as fast as the slowest link in
the chain from the website that you are attempting to
view to your home or business computer. For this reason
it is important that your hosting company does not cause
this 'bottleneck'. Here at Lazerlink Internet Services,
our servers are connected to the Internet backbone with
an OC3 providing 155Mb/s of connectivity. A OC3 is equivalent to over 100 T1s.
In addition to our OC3 connection, we have a redundant DS3 line as well.
Having these redundant connections benefits our clients
in two ways. First, this allows our maximum output to
be almost 200 Mbps. Secondly, they run in different directions
from our location in State College. One connecting to the major
Internet exchange in Pittsburgh, and the other runs
to the major exchange in Philadelphia. These redundant
routes protect your website from a 3rd party failure
between our servers and the Internet. If our connection
to Pittsburgh is interrupted, your users will see very
little difference in response time provided there is
not a simultaneous problem with our Philadelphia connection.
We use third party monitoring from multiple locations to ensure that our customers
websites are reachable from all locations on the Internet. We track our uptime which is typically at or above
