How many users can I support with 900kbps

Hi there,

I just started to dig into audio webcasting and just to get an idea I would need to know how many users can I support with an 900kbps upload speed and a 64 bitrate quality sound?

Thanks a lot,

Jerome

900/64=

uploadspeed / bitrate = max users

always keep some bitrate untouched for overhead.

Each Thursday a new show on Celtica Radio with Darkwave music.

Ok, this is what I thought.

But it sucks, what would be the best solution to provide at least 100 listener at 64 bitrate?

Do you know any good connection providers or hosting services to recommend me? What are the best options?

Thanks again,

Jerome

100 listeners @64kbps requires 6.4Megabits/sec. (6,400kbps) -- That's a lot of bandwidth {$}
