Yes, the cost for a T1 will seem very high.  It is antiquated telco 
tech.  T1s are generally very reliable, but very very slow.

1.5Mbps is not faster than 40Mbps.  There's nothing hidden in the way 
they advertise speeds.

DSL and DOCSIS technologies have advanced and matured over the last 
couple of decades.  T1 has not.  A T1 connection is the same now as it 
has always been.
