Our small company has used DSL for 5 years, and I'm starting to wonder if we've outgrown it. We have about 30 client computers, mail server, etc., sharing a 3.0Mbps/384Kbps DSL line. The connection is good, and as long as no one is uploading anything, the downstream is fine. Of course, as soon as someone sends a big email or uploads something to an FTP site, our entire upstream bandwidth is consumed, so regular web requests have to wait in line. This leads to the perception that our download speeds are bad.
Anyway, I'm wondering what DSL expectations are among business users in this group. On average, how many users, and what kinds of services would you expect business-class DSL to support? I'm expecting a sales call today from our ISP about upgrading to a partial T1, but I'm hoping to get some unbiased opinions first.
Thanks for reading to the end :)
