All-ll-rightee-ee then... Tell ya what, a 4Mb pipeline might better suit
your business needs. Keep in mind that if the "end user" has anything less
than your 4Mb channel, that transmission/reception quality will drop
accordingly! Sure, your reflector will notice the benefits, but will your
users??? Also, if your business's network is centralizing the 4Mb TCI line,
and ALL your users are on the 4Mb pipeline, you ALL will notice the quality!

I hope this answers your questions?
