Hi bachra04,

Normally you can count on about 25% utilization as a maximum, 100% will never be reached.
So what kind of ADSL connection are you talking about? 1Mbit/2Mbit etc.
If you want the best for your customers, devide 400Mbit by the amount bandwidth per user.

As an example if you have all 1Mbit connection, you can without any problems utilize 400 users.
Note that 25% is a maximum, most of the time you'll see you can do with way lower.

Greetings,

LucF

unlimited number of clients.

however , if your total bandwidth is 100mbit, the more users you have, the quicker you are going to eat up the limit.

if it's not total transfer bandwidth that you are referring to, then LucF sumed up everythign as far as what you should plan for, for usage.
