me <- phone company line connect us -> ISP <- some big company which has T3 or OC2 or OC12? -> internet
Is that the pictures?? me connected to my ISP by version(my case) and my ISP connect to the internet by ( big bandwith company)? What line usually does aDsL ISP have to the internet? 8 to 1 with T1? thanks..
Sometimes the diagram is even simpler: the data goes: me - big phone company - internet and the payment goes me => ISP -> big phone company -> ISP profits The ISP becomes just a retailer and support channel for a wholesale product which you use direct from the provider.
