Sorry if this is a basic question, I used to get confused regarding the BW issue. For Eg: if ISP link having BW 2 Mbps how would the download and upload happens. Can I download 2 mbps data and upload 2 mbps of data at a time. Tried to find out some tech notes but couldn't any one useful
Also what does 1:1, 1:2 etc means (if the BW is 2 Mbps) from Service provider end will they do any config in this case at ISP Router side..
Thanks in advance
When you say 2Mb 1:1, it means you have been dedicated full 2Mb (upload/dwonload) from the ISP
If it is 2Mb 1:4, at any given point of time you are assured of only 512k out of the 2Mb. The rest is shared but you can burst upto 2Mb when there is available bandwidth
