What Controls The Type of Intenet Resources and Their Usefulness II
What is generally the slowest part of Internet?
- Generally, the slowest part of Internet for most people is between the guest computer and the ISP router. This is called the "Last Mile Problem".
Bandwidth in this "Last Mile" is 56 kbps for most people. It is increases by almost 25 times if one can get a Cable Modem or DSL line.
Increased bandwidth will generally be asymmetric, meaning that the data upload rate will be slower than the download rate.
