Like I said, as an average end-user with 10 Mbps you get to send a maximum of 2500 packets per second. That's plenty to do VoIP, set up TCP sessions or do IM. You just don't get to send the full 10 Mbps at this size. _______________________________________________ NANOG mailing list NANOG@xxxxxxxxx http://mailman.nanog.org/mailman/listinfo/nanog
