Is there a way to tell if my ISP provider is leasing out T1 to other companies?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

ISP’s do not typicaly lease out T1′s. This is a function of a local telecom provider. The ISP may have multiple customers coming into their data center where the aggregate inbound customer bandwidth exceeds the capacity of the ISP. For example, 40 different customers have T1′s (total 60Mbps) provided by various telecom organizations yet their ISP may have just an OC3 (45Mbps). This is called oversubscription. An example can be seen <a href=”http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/routers/10000/10008/configuration/guides/qos/10qovsub.html”>here</a>.
