2007 has fibre inbound/outbound at 100Mbs.
No upload/download stats were kept.
There were about 20 APs spread around the facility.
Access was everywhere.
There was a login system, but it melted on day 1 and access was open
from then on. Log systems and firewalls are bad bad bad.
Workshop computers had ethernet connections, they didn't use wifi.
