Commonly Used Network Link Speed Terms

When people talk about network and network links and the speed, they talk in terms of jargon like T1, DSL, OC etc. Some terms most of us are familiar with and then there are some which makes us our head scratch. I decided to publish a small list of terms describing what are the range of speeds associated with these terms. This list does not provide complete list but I believe it is sufficient for most of us.
