Bandwidth Requirement of a Lanshop was created by xicowner
Maraming beses ng naitanong sa iba't-ibang threads dito sa ating forum ang tungkol sa ilang units ba ang kaya ng Smart Bro, Globe's Broadband Trader, Typan, Tycoon at PLDT Business Plans. Marami na ring beses nasagot ang mga tanong na ito pero wala yatang \"hard and fast rule\" o \"rule of thumb\" na nai-reply. Napaka-importanteng issue ito lalo na sa magdedecide pa lang na magbukas ng kanilang lanshop kaya naisipan kung umpisahan at ma-consolidate sana dito ang mga opinions sa subject. Kung meron naman na ganitong topic (na di ko nakita nang mag-search ako), please delete this topic na lang, mga kosang mods.

Sa kasalukuyan, pag nagtanong ka sa mga ISP kung ilang units ang recommended nilang i-connect sa mga plans nila, malamang ganito ang maging sagot nila. Pag residential plan na 384Kbps, isang unit lang. Yung lowest business plan na 1.5Mbps (kuno), good for 3 to 5 units daw, and so on and so forth. Natural lang sa ISP na i-recommend ang mga nabanggit dahil, syempre, gusto nila kumita ng malaki sa isang subscriber.

Pero ano nga ba ang bandwidth (in Kbps) na kailangan i-allocate sa isang unit ng PC na nasa lanshop? Syempre, ang sagot dito \"depende\" at dahil dito ay kailangang linawin kung saan depende at matapos malinaw yung depende ay ano ang recommended bandwidth.

Umpisahan ko ng yung \"depende\" at anong bandwidth ang recommended. Noong Year 2000 na dial-up (28.8Kbps) pa lang ang Internet connection na available, sa apat (4) na units namin sine-share ang connection. Yung may ISDN (64Kbps) nung panahon na yun, hanggang walo (8) ang pwede i-connect. This means 8Kbps per unit lang ang rule of thumb but please take note that wala pang online games at video streaming nung panahon na yun.

Paki-share naman yun mga knowledge natin sa topic na ito, mga kakosa.

sa ngayon i would think 30 kbps is good enough for 1 pc. syempre, wag ka lang mag streaming ng sabaysabay sa isang pc. pero palagay ko wala na magrereklamo pa sa 30kbps.

Thank you for your reply, kosang Bien. If we use 30kbps as the bandwidth allocation of a PC in a lanshop, then we say that a Smart BRO connection of 384kbps can run 12 units (384/30=12.8).

Can we have your opinion or experience on this, kosang ulopians with Smart BRO connections? Again I repeat, it's important that we establish the \"rule of thumb\" on this matter.

ako naka bandwith limiter ako, ang allocated ko sa bawat pc ko ay 40kbps downstream at 30kbps upstream. 2.2mbps PLDT plan ko.

smartbro with 12 units. except from the verified ISP interruptions, service lags, it's doing OK. no complaints from the tomers.

sometimes there's bound to be a glitch, that's normal to any ISP.

Salamat sa reply mo kosang Rage. Linawin ko lang na pag gamitin natin yung download limit na 40Kbps as bandwidth requirement per PC at assuming na 2.2Mbps talaga ang download speed ng connection, theoretically, ang maging maximum number ng PC na pwede sa PLDT Plan mo ay 55 units (2,200/40=55).

Of course, we should understand that a 2.2Mbps PLDT Plan cannot be taken at face value. Based on your experience, how many units do you recommend to be connected on this kind of connection?

mga bossing, let's not forget that KB is different from Kb..

sa ngayon i would think 30 kbps is good enough for 1 pc. syempre

30kbps is slower than dial-up w/c is at 56kbps, kung icoconvert natin yan in terms of KBps, that would be 3.75KBps only.. bagal nyan bossing.. wakekeke :D

ako naka bandwith limiter ako, ang allocated ko sa bawat pc ko ay 40kbps downstream at 30kbps upstream

i'm thinking maybe this isn't Kbps, it's KBps.. masyado kasi mabagal yung 40kbps, mas mabagal pa din sa dial-up yan..

ako personally, i limit my pc's to 15KBps only, that would be a 120 in terms of kbps.. i'm using 2 lines, digitel w/ 1mbps and a smartbro w/ 384kbps.. combining those speed w/ a dual wan router, i can theoretically say that i have a 1408kbps total speed..

1408kbps/120kbps per pc = 11.73 pc ^_^<br><br>Post edited by: divadnosaj, at: 2008/02/19 00:18

is that kind of bandwidth use only for internet surfing(YM, internet explorer, mozilla)? or internet connection speed per computer? (online games + surfing combine)? if its in KB not kbps, 15KBps is fairly enough.. if you have lets say smartbro as for your ISP..

on my opinion,yung mga games at application ngayon must need more bandwidth compare to applications,sites,and games that are usually used way back 3 years ago,sa ngayon mas marami nang online games, may youtube na and other streaming sites like imeem,soundflavor,etc...,
i would say and recommend that 1 mbps is good enough for 10 workstations,its better to be over than to give them less.

Yes, we know that 1 kiloByte/second (kBps) = 8 kilobits/second (kbps) and in order to avoid confusion in our discussions, I suggest that we use kbps and let me add that 1,000kbps = 1Mbps. As such, it would be easier for all of us to understand which Plan or ISP service to use because they are also expressed in kbps (384, 512 and 768) and Mbps (1.0, 1.5, 2.2 and 3.0).

To summarize what has been posted so far, 30, 40 and 120 kbps download bandwidth (internet connection speed) were brought up. Let me clarify lang na as stated on their posts, the respondents have bandwidth limiter on their systems. I know that we cannot agree on one (1) figure pero di naman siguro natin abutin yung tulad ng diskusyon sa P15/hr. rental charge.

Pwede bang mag-post pa yung iba na gumagamit ng ibang values at pakidagdag na rin ang experience nila sa paggamit ng values na yun.<br><br>Post edited by: xicowner, at: 2008/02/19 02:34
