    The name itself indicates the difference between them.

    Do you get high speed if your server is connected with 100mbps port ?
    Yes.

    It appears that you may have some sort of connection misconfiguration on your server. A 10mbps port should normally max out around 1200kbyte/sec. One possible reason that your connection may be so slow could be a duplex mismatch. Essentially your server's NIC and your assigned switch port are not linked with identical settings. Most likely your server's NIC is operating in half-duplex mode, while your switch port is operating at full-duplex.

    Port "speed" is a measure of capacity. If your network connection is idle besides your 80kbps download, then you will not see any change if you upgrade to a 100mbps port. However, if you are maxing out the 10mbps port and that is causing congestion (which will slow download speed), you will see an increase in download rates by moving to a 100mbps port.

    You got the right punch. It was on 1/2 duplex that was causing problem.

    Like it was stated, the port speed is really more of a measure of capacity rather than actual speed.

    For example, if you have users that are using a 1.5Mbps DSL connection accessing your website. Then if you have a 10Mbps port speed, you could conceivably handle 6.66 users maxing out that connection all at the same time. That is, if each of those users is able to max out their DSL connection and download something from your server, then you could handle 6.66 users before the bandwidth would be all used and users would start to see a drop in their speed.

    Conversely, with a 100Mbps port speed, you could handle (you guessed it!) 66.666 users with a 1.5Mbps DSL connection could max out before the bandwidth would all be used up.

    This usually has little consequence in terms of webhosting because file sizes are so small that by the time another user accessing your website tries to download an image, the first user has already gotten it downloaded. So in reality its really not fair to say 6.666 concurrent users on a 10Mbps connection. Likewise, the files are so small, users never max out their DSL (or whatever broadband connection) anyway in downloading the files.

    But if you were running a server, where massive files were being downloaded and downloaded a lot, then you could conceivably hit those limits. If you are just doing website hosting and not really offering any large files for downloads or having files downloaded constantly, then 10Mbps might be ok. If the website was getting a lot of hits then it would just globally slow down all of the other users that are making connections to your website. When does this start to become a problem? There's really know way of knowing, downloading a 15k image at 192KBps versus 50KBps, really has no observable difference.

    Dont get a big pipe unless you are on an unmetered or atleast a business continuance insurance. 10MBPS is fine for almost 95% webservers.

    Simple, the difference between 100Mbps and 10Mbps is 90Mbps
