I just got a price quote from a VPS hosting company that told me my Virtual Private Server could host 10 simultaneous user connections at once. What would this correlate to in terms of burstable bandwidth (Megabits per second) that other companies quote? How could I convert between the two?
I could do a back of the envelope calculation:
1 page = 64 Kilobytes = 524288 bits
2 MBPS burstable bandwidth
So my effective simultaneous users per second with 2MBPS burstable bandwidth would be:
2E6 / 524288 =~ 3 users per second?
Is this a sane analysis? I'm assuming that once a connection with a client is established it is given priority until it is completed.
