What is Ethernet Over Copper?
Ethernet over Copper technology (EoC) is a rapidly developing technology. It has allowed for the expansion of high speed internet to many areas in the world where internet was previously limited to only T1 or ISDN lines. Basic lines range from 3 to 10 Mbps, though some carriers offer upto 50 or even 100Mbps. Ethernet over Copper comes in many speeds with prices that vary based on location. EoC lines can be bundled in to higher connection speeds but other alternatives may be less expensive at that point.

Why is Ethernet Over Copper a Good Decision?
Ethernet over Copper is a long established technology that was previously only availible in large cities. It runs on the same basic technology used in high capacity telephone and data systems like a T1 but is equally or more reliable. The reliability increase is largely due to the redundancy of wiring in a typical EoC setup. Providers don’t like downtime and neither should their customers. This redundancy is maintained to keep a guaranteed up time that meet or exceeds all business industry standards.
Limitations of Ethernet over Copper
Limitations for EoC technology are largely distance. With the addition of many new central data points these lines reach many new places as explained above. Other limitations may include bandwidth. At some point it simply becomes cheaper to look at Ethernet over Fiber technologies. The downside to moving to fiber is that it can be a lot more expensive. With fiber you can however continue to expand without fear of reaching any sort of limit to your business.
