T3 and DS3 are used interchangeably. To our knowledge, there are no authoritative publications technically defining the two terms although it may be acknowledged that a "DS-3" refers to the format of transmission (framing) and "T3" refers to the type of connection and the facility used in transmitting the signal.

Fractional T1 Line Prices

The cost of your local loop is the same - irregardless if it's a full T1 or fractional T1 loop because the local phone company always sets the local loop a 1.54 Mbps. Since there are no cost savings for the T1 provider or the local phone company on a local loop, the end user customer doesn't get any cost cutting here either. Because it takes the same amount of copper wires and other equipment to run a fractional T1 as it does a full T1.
