Can the dedicated nature of the ethernet service makeup for it's lower nominal link speed? If so, how significantly?
Specifically, I'm comparing 150/20 Mbps w/ phone service from a cable company with a slightly more expensive 10/10 Mbps w/ phone service from a B2B business ethernet company.
Our primary usages, in order of importance, are:
- A web app used to manage all customer data (tons of small AJAX requests)
- Up to two HD video streams (YouTube or Netflix) for business use. (Entertaining children, and Digital Signage)
- Online backup (almost-real-time file share backups, nightly server backup)
- Customer and off-the-clock-staff web access (≤40 users browsing the internet, several using streaming video services.)
