    its great in half term, I have hit 500KB download speeds.
    but during term time it dosent seem that fast. im sure lots of our bandwidth is wasted on youtube but youtube is a "learning tool" so cannot be blocked.
    We also have 2 VC units we are looking to set up.
    sorry whats RBC?

    We've got 2mbit, we could only dream of a connection like that. Which Utopian city are you in, or have you got a time travel package on your internet line as well and are posting this from the future?

    500KB/s isn't a 100MBit line.

    Did you mean 10?

    just rerun the test after most staff have gone home (inset day today) and got 80000

    I have had lots of people complaning it is to slow, a few times I have had to point out that its running slow because 25 out of your 30 students are on youtube and not doing anywork.

    We have a 100mb/s RBC line. The highest ive ever seen us get is 4MB/s download so around 32mb/s in real life. Not too bad i suppose but when you consider Virgin are about to role out 50mb/s to your home around here, and we have 350 concurrent users, 32mb/s isnt really much tbh.

    We have 10 mbit here and in no hurry to go to 100 mbit. We probably wouldn't get anywhere near it with our ISP anyway.
