Develop a 4- to 5-page paper and address the following:
Evaluate the last mile connection in terms of a link that is used between an end user and an ISP.
Explain the last mile link options that are typically available to most end users (such as cable and digital subscriber line [DSL] services). Keep in mind that these options are usually missing in small rural communities.
Identify two to three of the more common connections and summarize their associated data rates, typical uses, and approximate costs. Obtain the exact cost information from at least one of the service providers.
Examine the role that T1 communications lines play in long-distance communications in conjunction with repeaters.
Compare different carriers used by service providers (such as a telecommunication company versus a cable service provider). Also, differentiate the types of equipment used as carriers by these service providers.
