Averall, and at present, I agree with you, but once the school becomes a
"centre of learning" with a good quantity of information and active
learning material on its own intranet server, then pupils will be
accessing it from home ("anytime, anywhere"). So during evenings, weekends
and holidays it will need high outgoing bandwidth. There are times in the
holidays when we have more outgoing than incoming.
