rural campus internet connection
living in the cities Ive been spoiled with hundred/gigabit internet; and everthing being cloud this, online that, Ive almost forgotten what its like to have slow internet. But Ive got a rural campus Im looking to improve the internet connection for. Currently it has an 'up to' ADSL2+ which is so far from the exchange its 1mb down and 0.1up
The alternative to adsl plan im looking at is 5mb/5mb.. would be fast enough for 70 simultaneous users, just doing browsing, research, and saving the occasional file to the cloud, do you reckon.

I don't see why not, wont be lightening fast but because you have the upload should help, our 2mb up and down was better than our ADSL of up to 8 and maybe 512kb up.

I would have thought that would be fine. Just make sure you can run QOS on your perimeter firewall to prioritisation any time sensitive applications.
