You really can't figure out the difference between something that's shared, and something that's dedicated?

shared means frame relay
frame relay limits you by CIR [committed information rate] which is usually half of port speed [1.5mbps]. Its only advantage in my mind is you can have multiple sites connect to a single sites router interface.

You share this bandwidth with other FR users. I have found Qwest oversubscribes their FR links.

PtP or leased line is a dedicated to you. You get the full 1.5mbps bandwidth.

If you are concerned strictly about speed DSL is the way to go with vpns.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
