Bandwidth stuff

#1 Post by Rob »

Since I am a network GEEK in need of serious help, while working 11 hours today I came up with this after hours. This is the future scope of what I'm planning for network infrastructure for the site:

Basic bandwidth chart:
1.5Mb = 183.105 kB
3Mb = 366.210 kB
5Mb = 610.352 kB
7Mb = 854.492 kB
10Mb = 1220.703 kB
15Mb = 1831.055 kB
20Mb = 2441.406 kB
50Mb = 6103.516 kB
75Mb = 9155.273 kB
100Mb = 12207.031 kB (11.921 mB)
1000Gb = 122070.31 KB (119.209 mB)

Example - 5M internet:
5*1000 = 5000Kb
5000 ÷ 8 = 625
625 * 1000 = 625,000
625,000 ÷ 1024
= 610.352kB [÷ 1024 = .596mB]

Example - max download/day 5M Internet:
610.352 * 86400
= 52,734,412 ÷ 1024
= 51,498.45 MB
51,498.45 MB ÷ 1024
= 50.29GB/Day

Download time numbers - Rob, how long will it take to download this if I maxed the current 7M line out with my badass internet? (Assuming NO ONE else is on the site):

500MB file: 9.986 minutes (6.9905 minutes with new speed)
800MB file: 15.978 minutes (11.185 minutes with new speed)
1GB file: 20.452 minutes (14.317 minutes with new speed)
1.5GB file: 30.678 minutes (21.475 minutes with new speed)
2GB file: 40.904 minutes (28.633 minutes with new speed)
2.5GB file: 51.131 minutes (35.791 minutes with new speed)
3GB file: 61.357 minutes (Just over 1 hour) (42.950 minutes with new speed)
3.5GB file: 71.583 minutes (50.108 minutes with new speed)
4GB file: 81.809 minutes (57.266 minutes with new speed, just less than 1 hour)
4.5GB file: 92.035 minutes (Just over 1.5 hours) (64.425 minutes with new speed)
5GB file: 102.261 minutes (71.583 minutes with new speed)
6GB file: 122.713 minutes (Just over 2 hours) (85.899 minutes with new speed, Just less than 1.5 hours)
7GB file: 143.1656 minutes (100.216 minutes with new speed)
10GB file: 204.522 minutes (Almost 3.5 hours) (143.166 minutes with new speed)

With that being said, Toughbooktalk history is below:

1) 22M/5M (Everyone could download stuff off of TBT at 610.352kB)
2) Then we went to 22/7M, (which we're stuck at for about 1 more month until Comcast updates their services to the better line below) (Everyone can download stuff off of TBT at 854.492kB)
3) Now with the new programming (which will cost the SAME), the line will be 50M/10M so Everyone can download stuff off of TBT at 1220.703kB or 1.192mB... - NOT BAD :headbang:

SHORT TERM) In the future (Within 1 year) (Along with a router upgrade which I've already purchased), I will bump it to 75M/15M, so that Everyone can download stuff off of TBT at 1831.055kB or 1.788mB.
LONG TERM) After that (4+ years out) I've planned for this line: 100M/20M. Everyone can download stuff off of TBT at 2441.406kB or 2.384mB.

I have this stuff ALL figured out so now I can actually sleep!!!!!!!!!!!! :doh:

Thanks! :cheers:

wow, you did some bit/byte number crunching in there ! and with 3 decimals precision :P

is DSL the only choice in you area ? because no matter how fast it would get (VDSL2, etc) it will always be an asymmetric connection, and your upload (our download) will be one fifth of your download (our upload). If only copper telephone lines are installed in the area, then that's the way it will be.

check if you have Verizon FiOS in your area - if it is, then you can get a ~100Mbps fiber connection, for probably the same money you pay Comcast today.

the new server will be able to handle/saturate a Gigabit(1000Mbps) connection @ 110+MB/s - probably more like 200+MB/s .

It's cable. And yes, Comcast is the BEST in our area believe it or not. VERY reliable! :) *Knocks on wood*
