51dtvuk,

Our servers are capable of handling unlimited concurrent viewers. All you need to make sure is that you have a minimum of 500 kbps dedicated upload bandwidth connection to our servers in New York.

so if i wanted to calculate in advance what data i would need it would be 1 viewer by kbps by time of broadcasting so if i was transmitting 1 show a week over four weeks at 500 kbps and each show is an hour long i would need at least 1gb data plan also could i use a smaller bandwidth than the 500kbps if so would would the acceptable minimum i could use.

also a helpful note if you want people to use speedtest.net give them this link http://newyork.speedtest.net/index.php as it will test to a New York server instead of them hunting for it

thanks for you help
