How many people can use a café’s Wi-Fi at once?
Most routers can handle more than enough users for the average coffee shop but the main limiting factor is the café’s incoming broadband.
Asked by: Claire Garder, Cirencester
Most routers will handle 255 simultaneous users, more than enough for the average coffee shop. The main limiting factor is the café’s incoming broadband. If it has a cable connection offering 50mbps and wishes to keep its customers happy by offering a consistent speed of at least 1mbps per user, then the coffee shop’s limit is 50 people.
