I am not too knowledgable when it comes to networking and network speed. We have a T1 connection as well as a metro ethernet connection as our main connection. The T1 is used for basic things like surfing the web and emails and the metro ethernet line is used for web applications. The T1 connection is also used as a backup connection if the metro e line goes down. The speed we are getting at best is 10mbps. Would it matter if we started using gigabit switches on our LAN? Will we be able to take advantage of the gigabit speed? What would be needed to be able to get gigabit speeds? If someone could give me a brief explanation of network speeds and summarize all this gigabit stuff, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
