I’ve been reading the forum but haven’t found a clear answer as to the realistic expectations of the A5 or A5C w/sectors and C5 client line.
Here’s the scenario
Recently built suburban neighborhood - approximately 550 homes
No tree issues to speak of
400 meter width/length of neighborhood / 200 meter max distance from center
With no terrain interference, what is the realistic maximum number of clients that can be connected to an A5 or A5 w/sector and what are the maximum speeds that a single user could expect to see? I’m not interested in what the marketing sheets show, but what an ISP should reasonably expect.
The reality is that most users will never exceed 10 - 20 Mbps in a normal usage, but if selling against an existing cable provider with speeds up to 300 Mbps offering 25 Mbps max is not an easy sell - as opposed to showing a speed test of 400 Mbps even though they would likely never use it.
