Updated: 04/26/2017 by Computer Hope

T2 may refer to any of the following:

1. T2 is a leased data communications line capable of transmitting 6.3 megabits per second.

Some of the benefits of "T-Carrier" (T2 lines) include:

  • Lines are dedicated, which means you are not sharing your connection with others.
  • Because it is a dedicated line, it is a much more secure connection.
  • Lines are synchronous, which means you get the same download and upload speed.

Even with all of the benefits of these lines because of the needs of more bandwidth alternative solutions like fiber optic lines are becoming a more popular solution.

2. T2 is short for the 1991 sci-fi movie, Terminator 2: Judgment day.
