    Very similar to what you're experiencing but on 10Mbps for the schools I serve. I've conducted tests on the BGfL speed tester which makes little to no difference. The overheads on the BGfL it seems are just enormous!

    Plus the fact that logging calls on the Help Desk is now considerably more difficult. I'm borderline giving up as it doesn't seem to be registering that since the Link2ICT conference performance is the same or worse.

    Yep.... one school upgraded two months ago and today all mobile devices lost the connection to the proxy, Monday we lost all Gmail and Twitter posting ability via Mobile apps, no response from Link, one waiting indefinitely no answer as yet from Link regularly drops out on the 10mbps line school frequent calls and requests to link on Service Desk and as yet no answer to the when will we upgrade question...

    Feel like firing a rocket up a certain account manager who refuses to contact me either via email or phone, how can one school be done so quickly and easily and then they completely mess the other one around.


    So yes still issues, still frustrating and don't feel like we're getting any where fast.

    I've given up with service desk as it refused to accept Network Services as a valid Service Area or Loss of Connectivity as a problem... it's been programmed by her

    I had the Cisco 3550 replaced last week with the same model and it seem to have fixed the problem. The Internet hasn't dropped

    Did the new switch have updated firmware?

    Well it's to be expected if they continue running 8+ year old switches which are EoL and should have been replaced years ago.

    I don't think they can run newer firmware as the switches just need to be replaced altogether.
