In the ideal world, what would be an acceptable speed (up and down) for our internet assuming a leased line with 1:1 contention?
We have an office with 20 people, we currently have an extremely slow connection so we are looking at moving offices, but we do not want to fall into the same trap.

It would depend on your requirements and budget as to the type of line however we use 8mb SDSL lines which have a 1:1 contention and they are great.

The newer lines come with ADSL failover as well so your connection automatically switches when a problem is detected.

There are as always fibre options that are available however you can't always guarantee what you are getting and i have found in some instances fibre is less reliable/stable than a good old fashioned copper connection

I was thinking along those speeds, so that just confirms it.
Thanks
