Is it faster then high speed cable?
How much does it cost?
Is it worth it if I run many game servers?

far as i remember, it can do as high as 1.5m, thats like normal dsl connection. but it has been said it can get up to much higher bandwidth. 4-6m.
game servers? ya, you need concern your self with ping rate ,not so much teh bandwidth. with t-1, (it is on the phone line, like dsl and isdn) it uses 24 channels ,each one connects at 64k. so you get 24 64k connections.as far as the rate, call your isp.

T-1 is typically a dedicated connection, meaning you are receiving what you pay for. A 1.5Mbs/1.5Mbs connection will receive that wight. On cable or ADSL you may or may not get the speed promised.
T-1 lines use to be very expensive. Last I heard depending on your location $800/mo to $1500/mo. But alot more goes with that high price. I have not researched T-1 since the late '90s so I'm alittle out of the loop.
