BW calculation question.
How do i calculate the port speed, If I wanted to get 1000 BW per month.
Any help would be appreciated.

I have no idea what you are talking about.
The port speed? What port speed?
and 1000 what per month?
Please try and explain yourself more clearly next time.

Port speed = how much the line is pushing out?
10mbps would easily pull out 1000gb but it would be slow, i would suggest getting 100mbps if its being used for a production server with fairly heave usage.
If you maxxed out a 10mbps fully optimized connection for 1 month constantly i believe you would be pulling out close 26,000GB (based on a 30 day month)... wouldnt be very healthy mind you, dont personally like the sound of maxing a connection for 1 month constantly

A good way to do this is as follows.
If you used 1 Mbps continuously for a whole month you would use ~324 GBytes. Using the averages of peak time to average then you find its easy to get 180 GBytes per Mbps;
So for 1000 GBytes you would need about 5.5 Mbps.

Even then though you can burst up to 100 MBPS for a few seconds and come back down. Just because it say 10 MBPS doesn't means thats the Transfer limit.
