Server bandwidth

What sort of bandwidth does a T2 server take?

I read somewhere that a good estimate is to take your uplink speed, subtract ~50kB/s (kilobyte, not kilobit) and then divide by 7kB/s per user to get the total number of users.

Is that legit?

That means on a 10Mbit line I would be pushing (10*1000)/8 = 1.25MB/s upstream.

Subtract 50 kB/s and divide by 7 gives ~170 users.
