i am trying to work out how we can get higher speeds on our internet.
the speed is ok at the mo but sometimes it slows right down. We currently have A 8meg adsl connection that is on a line contention of 50:1. in the mornings and sometimes in the afternoon it does become very slow and i wondered if there is anything i could do about this.
The pipe comes into our server 2003 and is then distributed around 40 people in the office. on a speedtest from a client pc we get around 1meg internet speed but as i say it slows right down at certain times.
what could be a reason for this?? do i need a dedicated line? could it be network traffic.
