Calculation 1: Calculate the total data transfer for the live event.

This would be:

-=Total Stream Size in MB/KB=-

Total Stream/s - 0.00269MBps or 2.75KBps

Total Stream/h - 9.66797MBph or 9,900KBph

Total Stream/2h - 19.33594MBp2h or 19,800KBp2h

This is the size of the data transfer for the live event. But, that question depends. Are they asking for the live event's transfer size ONLY? Or the live event's transfer size + the 1500 people watching it? The above is ONLY the size of the event after the 2 hours is up. The formula is simply:

1) Converting 22Kbps to 2.75KBps because 1Kbps = 0.125KBps

22*0.125=2.75

2) Taking the 2.75KBps and figuring out a 2 hour figure

(((2.75*60)*60)*2)=19,800KB

3) Simply converting 19,800KB into MB

19,800KB = 19.33594MB

So, in short... Yes, that would be correct Trotter. This is ONLY the size of the stream itself.

Calculation 2: Calculate the required internet connection bandwidth.

This would be:

-=Total Stream Used for 1500 people=-

Total Stream Used/s - 32.25Mbps or 33,000Kbps

Total Stream Used/h - 116,100Mbph or 118,800,000Kbph

Total Stream Used/2h - 232,200Mbp2h or 237,600,000Kbp2h

Actually, if you want to get technical, it would be the total bandwidth for 1500 people + 1 extra for the stream itself... LOL

so............

Take ALL of this....

-=Total Stream Used for 1500 people=-

Total Stream Used/s - 32.25Mbps or 33,000Kbps

Total Stream Used/h - 116,100Mbph or 118,800,000Kbph

Total Stream Used/2h - 232,200Mbp2h or 237,600,000Kbp2h.

and ADD it to THIS....

-=Total Stream Bandwidth=-

Total Stream/s - 0.0215Mbps or 22Kbps

Total Stream/h - 77.4Mbph or 79,200Kbph

Total Stream/2h - 154.8Mbp2h or 158,400Kbp2h

And you get THIS for the total 1500 people and the stream itself....

-=Total Stream Bandwidth + 1500 PEOPLE WATCHING=-

Total Stream/s - 32.2715Mbps or 33,022Kbps

Total Stream/h - 116,177.4Mbph or 118,879,200Kbph

Total Stream/2h - 232,354.8Mbp2h or 237,758,400Kbp2h

---------------------------------------------------

I know that 1500 aren't going to be watching at the same time and that the total watched won't be the full 2 hours. BUT, if 1500 total people watched everything live... and you had a 45Mbps connection, you would be pushing 32.2715Mbps for the stream and to ALL of these 1500 people. So, worst case scenario, your ISP would be fine
