I'm an IT assistant and am attempting a download of CentOS for a webserver. It's a 3.9 gig DVD ISO and whenever I start the download, or any download for that matter, it will max out at 300kbps, seems slow for a business internet connection...anyways then people start calling saying the phones aren't working properly and that they are losing their connection in Wyoming (we're in Michigan).
Is this normal for a medium sized business network? Basically I can't download anything at full speed because it chokes off our T1 line and everyone else at our other locations starts to lag...is there anything i can do about this?
Edit: I just found out that all of our locations proxy back to our main office where I am located and go out to the internet through here. That seems like a ton of wasted bandwidth to me.
