Hi all,

I just started my new job in a dormitory that host approximately 15,000 workers. My company provide wifi access in the dormitory.

The current bandwidth is 1GBps and approximately 800 users are sharing. Many have came to us and complain about slow speed.

My question is, what is the maximum number of users can 1GBps support. Let's say...all users are watching youtube at the same time?

Note : Each user is allocated with 6mbps bandwidth.

Thanks in advance..

Simple math tells me that statement is incorrect. 1gbps / 800 = 1.25mbps
