Public wifi isp speed.

I am looking to put wifi into a arena and wanted to know if 1gbps internet speed is fast enough?   The area has a capacity of 4,000 people but I assume that there would be less than third of these people accessing the internet.  Based on video streaming from Facebook and simular video streaming sites would this be fast enough?   I was wondering if anyone has put in wifi in an arena/stadium with this kind of volume?   I will be putting in unifi XG BaseStation AP’s along with a few HD AP’s that i curtently have in areas of the arena.

Re: Public wifi isp speed.

So based on that article 1gbps should be fine.  should I restrict bandwidth speed and if so how much?  I want them to watch video without any lag.

Re: Public wifi isp speed.

I am unable to purchase the XG Basestations because my suppliers tell they are not available yet.  Where can I purchase these units?

Re: Public wifi isp speed.

I don’t see the XG BaseStation ones on the Beta Store. I do see that there are the XG HD Access Points that can also handle 1500 clients.   Could they also be used for an arena?   I was told that I could moun 4 XG BaseStation AP’s on the hockey scoreboard in the center of the arena.  We have a seating capacity of 4,000 people.  I figured there would be around 300 people accessing the wifi.   What do you think?

Re: Public wifi isp speed.

What would be the main advantages of a dedicated fibre from the isp?   Here in Canada dedicated fibre is really expensive.  I am trying to determine what speeds will make this work so people won’t suffer lag at the same time not spending on unnecessary bandwidth.

Hello @leighproct,

 

Low Latency and high bandwidth.

You need to guess on how much you're going to be using.

 

When taking the other story in your backhead, and seeing what bandwith they used.

1246 users and 220Mbps.

 

You're guessing around 1400 users will access the internet?

I would get a 400Mbps line if possible.

Re: Public wifi isp speed.

I would say we would have no more than 800 people accessing it.  So you are saying that 220mbps is how much bandwidth was used?  I am note concerned about people watching video on their phones.  Will a 400mbps service be ok for that?

Hello @leighproct,

 

The 220Mbps used on the other event was with quite alot of older people.

 

Its a wild guess, You won't see all users streaming videos at the same time..

For sure use usergroups so 1 users cant take all the bandwidth leaving 0 for the others.

Re: Public wifi isp speed.

So I can restrict the connections to 1mbps for instance to make sure that it is evenly distributed?
