No, you do not have a T1 connection. You don't even have fibre yet according to your recent posts.

 

A T1 is a much older type of connection. It starts immensely slower than DSL (1.5mbps) and far far more expensive because T1 connections are full duplex connections. Typically T1s were only found in businesses.

 

DSL Link Up Time could mean a few things including your modem reconnected 12 hours ago in the middle of the night.

Residential customers have no need for T1 connection. (Are you running a big home business) It's no benefit to you. T1 was all the hoopla in the mid 90s. Why would you want it when FTTH (Fibre to the home) is available for a much lower cost? Besides a T1 line is more then you'd be willing to spend a month..

You can lose uplink for a variety of reasons. Power outage, scheduled maintenance etc..
