10 Mbps vs 100 Mbps


Well, I am really new to this kind of stuff but I just had a question. I had a dedicated server for one month and the host said it was a shared 100 Mbps and it was really nice. But he suggested that I get a unmetered 10 Mbps and I was thinking about getting it but I really wasnt sure if it would slow me down alot. I am constantly downloading and uploading. The most at one time I have gotten to was 10000 kb/sec upload and 7000 kb/sec download but I am not sure about the numbers. Any help?

Shared 100Mbps means they multiple people on a 100Mbps uplink to their core or a provider.

Unmetered 10Mbps in theory means you have 10mbps direct to the core. In *theory* every body should be able to hit 10Mbps no problems though if they set your interface to 10Mbps your max speed is going to be around 8-9Mbps Many providers oversell 100Mbps lines and their networks very few don't oversubscribe.

10Mbps is a great package deal and IMHO is better than a 100mbps "shared" line. 10Mbps unmetered on a 100Mbps port is great incase you need to burst.

So with a unmetered 10 Mbps I dont have to worry about bandwidth?

Also will it it effect my downloading? The max I have been is 10000 kb/sec upload and 7000 kb/sec download will I still be able to get those speeds?

While you're on unmetered 10Mbps it means that if you use it link at full throttle for 24/7 you'd be using up about 3TB's a month so that'll be your limit. If you're uploading at 10000kb/s (1250KB/s) it equals to about 10Mbps.

Since we don't know how "shared" the 100mbps line is, it's impossible to put one option above the other. You could be able to push 10kbps on shared connection, you could be able to push 100mbps (though either extreme is pretty likely).

On a 100mbps "shared" connection, it is most probably over sold. I doubt they would put only 10 people on a 100mbps connection so that everyone will have atleast 10mbps theoretically to use and if they did, I wouldn't see why they can't put these 10 servers or clients on a 10mbps plan instead unless they're using the whole 100mbit factor as a marketing scheme.
