Bandwidth is going to be a Issue

Talking with the Marriott Hotel staff tonight they were bragging that they had a T1 installed and have never had a problem handling the bandwidth. I asked them if they have every had a hotel full of guest that were trying to upload files at the same time and that everyone that was coming would be publishing audio files to their servers.

The manager got a little pale and I told him your network will be lucky to survive and you better make some calls or your going to have some pissed off guest. They have no idea the avalanche of data consumption and pushed traffic that is about to demanded of that poor little T1.

So if their is a Podcast tomorrow it will by pure luck because I know that traffic is going to be a issue.
