    100Mbps is a typical speed for the small network in your office. It is designed for computers to be able to talk to each other in a relatively small area at high speeds. This is commonly known as an Ethernet network.

    The T1, T2, T3, etc are long-distance backbone type connections that connect locations in different cities or countries. An example would be a T1 that connects a branch office in Houston to the headquarters in Los Angeles. You typically get these from the phone companies like AT&T or Qwest.

    A T1 is 1.544Mbps, a T2 is 6.312Mbps, a T3 is 44.736Mbps, and this goes on. The most common are the T1 and T3.

    There's much more technical detail regarding the T-carrier hierarchy, but that is the nutshell version.

    T1 etc are particular types of highspeed internet connections used by universities and companies (they have other options).

    100 mbps is particular fast and probablly refers to a local network connection using ethernet.
