I work in a small company. We do everything in the cloud. The ISP we use tells me we should have 600 Mbs down and 35 Mbs up. I went on a speed test site and found we had 260 Mbs down and 40 up. How do I know if my service is not enough for my needs? Sure, you can say I'm paying for more than I getting, but let's go farther than that. If I don't really need 260 at this time, how will know when I need more? Is there a tool that can give me stats that show this for all machines, or for combined total of the same? Is there a real time monitor for this?

Thanks,

260 mbps is faster than most in UK get, and we manage quite happily. Unless you are downloading and uploading lots of files/data all day long, I doubt you will have a problem.

I agree with Ghot & cereberus.



Welcome to ElevenForum.

Once you've resolved your current issue it will really be worth making time to browse through the Tutorial index - there's a shortcut to it at the top of every page [within the Tutorials dropdown list].
- At the foot of the Tutorial index is a shortcut to download it as a spreadsheet.
- I download a new copy each month.
- By downloading it as a spreadsheet I can benefit from Excel's excellent filtering capabilities when I search for topics of interest.
- Tutorials are also listed at Tutorials - there's a shortcut to that at the top of every page.
