  2. 2. This is a newly established Event Management company who are currently in the process of setting up a home office for all their business requirements in Castleknock Dublin 15.<br />This company requires a broadband provider who can offer high speed broadband for a low cost. <br />There are currently two staff members who both need access to an internet connection at the same time via one computer and one laptop. <br />Both Staff members need to be able to send and receive emails to customers with medium sized attachments. <br />Greenwood Event Management Company<br />

  8. 8. In order to break down these four providers I will look at the:<br />Contention Ratio- This is the greatest number of people who could be using the bandwidth at the same time. The higher the contention ratio means broadband could be slower especially at peak times.<br />Download speed- The company need to be able to receive large documents at a moderate speed<br />Upload Speed- The company need to be able to upload documents and pictures (Send via e-mail)<br />Cost- Monthly rate <br />Evaluation of 4 Providers which suit the companies requirements<br />
