I need to know if their's a specific formula or calcualtor tool to figure out the type of Internet service I need to bring into a 1700 unit apartment complex, where 1mbps would be provisioned for each unit.  Also taking into account that 60% of the units will be subscribers but at the same time not all active subcribers will be on at the same time.  I initially sized up a full DS3 but I'm wondering if I should start with an OC3 burstable?

I honestly don't know the answer to this.  But I will say this is a large enough problem that I wouldn't trust it to the opinions here.  Instead, I would have the task bid out to at least three providers and have them work up the recommendation for the full package based upon their prior experience with large complexes.  I'd say that trying to do this on a shoestring budget would be just asking for a major headache (to say the least).

Do it right.  Get three bids and let the providers do all the hard calculation work.  Don't forget to include issues like redundant connections as 1700 households can get very cranky when their service stops working for any length of time! Having only one pipe into the complex is a risky proposition.

Good luck!
