I had a similar issue once

by NotSoChiGuy In reply to Bandwidth t1 getting only ...

We had a T3, but weren't realizing anywhere near our expected capacity (even accounting for service overhead).

Turns out it was a combination of two things: the network equipment wasn't setup properly (wasn't my area, so I can't tell you exactly what was wrong) to accommodate the full T3, as well as some work in the area that 'dinged' the circuit, causing severe signal degradation.

So, here are some things you'll want to test prior to calling your service provider (since they'll have you check):

1). Are all cables attached properly (yeah, I know...but still, they'll ask)?
2). Have you performed isolation testing (does the problem only occur with the entire network trying to hit outbound, or can you isolate one resource and replicate the issue...does issues manifest in front/behind firewall)?
3). Is your equipment configured properly?

Assuming you've checked and cleared all that, they'll probably need to do a line test of some sort to try and sniff out the problem.

Good luck!

I'd share this...

by NotSoChiGuy In reply to Getting 1/3 Bandwidth on ... with the data provider, to see if they can run a line diagnostic, and confirm that they setup the line as a full T1, and not a fractional.

Make sure you have the customer's contract handy, too....just in case.
