I copied a 910 MB file from a Notebook to a network share. It took 1:40 min. Is this an acceptable time within a corporate network (100 MBit)?
What time should it last to be acceptable?

That is a bit slow. The speed you got was about 1.3MBit/s

With full 100MBit/s it should take 1 minute and 16 seconds..
But other traffic on the network, your computer doing other stuff, the network share handling other connections it will never be that fast.

But this was slow, it should be finished in 5 to 15 minutes...

Sorry, my bad, i read hours in stead of minutes... That means my calculations are very wrong! The speed you got is actually verry good!
