Hard to determine really since no one hardly is going to have adequate knowledge about internet infrastructure. Maybe it won't even slow, who knows.
Even at late night hours with no one online, I never get anywhere near the 4 mbps that is advertised through cable. Load might go from 10% capacity
to 30%, in which case not really a problem.
The amount of time people spend on the internet varies so much, so its hard to say what 40% at home would do. It's probably a greater chance that
they'd use an "emergency" to put caps on bandwidth for individual users, and change extra for going over your limit. Comcast is already testing
this in Texas and New York I think I read. Really a crappy and unpopular move, understated
To go through each and every website determining
bandwidth is impractical, but limits for each person is doable.
And no, ATS wouldn't be shut down. This site isn't that important (unless you want to believe that the "TPTB" are monitoring this site
extensively since its harming their sleep quality) the bandwidth this site uses is so low and not that many people come here compared to other
media/news sites. But sure is exciting conjecture! lets hope it translates into a flurry of clicks.
