How Does the Internet Work?
SmartShare makes the internet smarter! Why should you choose SmartShare instead of other similar products? To understand that, you need to know a little about how the internet works, because it really is about the available amount of bandwidth we have. Or do we?
How Does The Internet Work?
Here is an example:
Let us take a look at, how an ordinary internet connection distributes traffic.
Three users are sharing an 1,5 Mbit/s internet connection.
The calculation looks like this:
1,5 Mbits/10 flows = 0,15 Mbit/s per flow
User 1 has 1 flow and gets 0,15 Mbit/s
User 2 has 1 flow and gets 0,15 Mbit/s
User 3 has 8 flows and gets 1,2 Mbit/s
Now, user 1(with 1 flow) and user 2 (with 1 flow), will get 10% of the available bandwidth each. User 3 (with 8 flows) gets 80% of the available bandwidth.
Imagine what it would look like if user 3 had 100 flows! For comparison, an ordinary website as www.thetimes.co.uk generates about 75 flows.
