I got invaluable information from this group when setting up the wireless infrastructure at our cowork.
Now that members are starting to work there every day I’m concerned about capacity and speed.
We are running ubiquiti access points and a pfsense firewall connected to a cable internet connection 50/5.
I’ve done some general traffic shaping on the firewall but haven’t watched it yet to see how that performs, but I’m wondering when we start to saturate that available bandwidth where we’re going to go next.
What are other spaces using for their net connection? How much is that costing you? We’re paying right around $250 for that 50/5. I’d love fiber except that in our neighborhood that cost will jump significantly. There is one provider that is affordable but they are still in the build-out by neighborhood stage. They’d be around $250 for gigabit service. I’ve been hounding them! Others in the area start at over $1000/month. That’ll get me 100/10 fiber service.
Another 50/5 and do load balancing?
I have to believe that being in the heart of a major city with plenty of fiber has to be cheaper…
