A common theme right now is the issue of bandwidth (connectivity) at homes. There is a significant increase in home network traffic to the internet. Multiple carriers are reporting overloads on the neighborhood connections and trunk lines (super highways). This is causing traffic jams.
Think of this like our highways, the one lane roads connect to two lanes then the interstate, the reality is we have traffic Jams. The best way around this is limit video traffic when doing conference calls if the meeting exceeds 25 connections. If you have a large meeting use the WebEx events connection at Lonestar.WebEx.com to set up this type of meeting. If you need assistance the Service Desk is open.
