This is more of a rant about my college's network then anything else, but i do have a few questions. Ok So my college admitted more freshman then they ever did before this year. Big Deal right. Well apparently this extra load is putting a severe strain on the college's T1 based network. 1.5-2 T1s to support roughly 1400-1500 students. Do these numbers seem a bit off? Well last year i used to get access around 10kbps though not blazing it was more then adequit. This year on the other hand i get the pleasure of connecting at a blazing average speed of 500bps. Apparently our IT department didn't do it's job because "We were unaware of the increase in enrollment" It;'s not like the college doesn't know how many new students are coming am I RIGHT? I think all colleges require some kind of deposit before enrolling. Call me crazy. The major question i have is just how hard is it to add bandwith to an existing network? i don't know alot about IT just a little more then your average person. I just want to know what kind of limitations are there when it comes to adding another T1 or possibly bumping up to a T3?
