Welcome to Ethernet Buildings!
Our mission is to help you find providers of Ethernet telecom services for your business location. These services include Ethernet over Copper (EoC) and Ethernet over Fiber (EoF). You'll hear them referred to as Carrier Ethernet or Metro Ethernet. They are most often available in major cities or suburban business locations. However, a related service called Ethernet over DS1 (EoDS1) uses multiple T1 lines to bring Ethernet bandwidth to smaller towns or less populated rural areas.
Most of the excitement surrounding Metro Ethernet services is justified. Your connection is a simple RJ45 connector just like the one's on your LAN equipment. Pricing is highly competitive, with generally lower lease prices per Mbps than traditional telecom services.
What Ethernet Services Are Available?
Lower bandwidth services up to 50 to 100 Mbps or more may be available over twisted pair copper if you are close to a carrier's point of presence. Higher bandwidth services up to GigE or even 10GigE require fiber optic connections.
How Can I Get Service Availability and Pricing?
That's what this site is all about. On most of our pages you'll find a Telarus "Shop For Ethernet" search engine. Simply enter your building address and the system will search a dozen or more carrier databases to find the Ethernet services available for your building. These results are available almost instantly online. You then have the option to provide some basic contact information to have a Telarus consultant call you to discuss your application and pricing for your location.
Please note that this is a complementary service, but for business addresses only. Ethernet is not available for residential locations.
Can I Get Phone Support for Business Ethernet Inquiries?
Absolutely. Simply call this toll free number anytime: (888) 848-8749 to get our most up to date Ethernet and other bandwidth service prices.
We do not collect any personally identifying information on EthernetBuildings.com. If you elect to contact a Telarus consultant for pricing and technical help, you will be asked to provide your name, business, and telephone number. This information will only be used to help you with your telecom needs.

Bandwidth to Support Convergence
Convergence means combining or converging voice, data and video
onto a single network. Enterprises usually need to expand their
LAN bandwidth and set up a QoS or Quality of Service priority
system to give priority to real-time streams such as telephone
calls or video conference feeds, which are more sensitive to network
delays than data transfers. Most often, the common protocol for
convergence is IP.
