Over the summer we upgraded one of our Internet circuits from 20mbps to 45mbps, providing a 25% increase in our overall capacity (we now have two 45mbps links). This upgrade was made possible due to a new NYS Contract with that service provider that provides double the capacity at a reduced cost to the college (we are going to save about $20,000 per year). Link balancing equipment is distributing traffic between two Internet service providers to better utilize our total of 90 megabits per second of Internet connectivity.
