There is a difference, mostly in latency and possible b/w ranges.
You can get ADSL anywhere from 256k to 1.5M fairly cheaply. This will
have an average latency around 30-40ms. Generally these connections
are not treated as mission-critical by Qwest, and can have acceptable
burps in connectivity.
A T1 line costs a lot more, and can range from 56k to 1.5M. These
typically have very low latency (0-1ms). These have extremely high
availability, and amazing uptime.
A DS3 costs even more, but is capable of b/w up to 45M (IIRC). Super
low latency. same high availability. Common for large companies, and
