The T-carrier system, introduced by the Bell System in the U.S. in the 1960s, was the first successful
system that supported digitized voice transmission. The original transmission rate (1.544 Mbps) in the
T-1 line is in common use today in Internet service provider (ISP) connections to the Internet. Another
level, the T-3 line, providing 44.736 Mbps, is also commonly used by ISPs. Another commonly installed
service is a fractional T-1 line, which is the rental of some portion of the 24 channels in a T-1 line,
with the other channels going unused.
