We've been running into general slowness across the board at our organization. A few things that are happening is that webpages take forever to open up, takes forever to type e-mails, etc... What we thought initially is that we just need to update our speeds across the board to a fiber connection (we are in the process of doing this). I even ran speed tests on some computers and they were barely getting over 3mbps!


However I had another theory. Upgrading to fiber is good, but what I've found is that all of our subnets are on one broadcast domain. That means all that broadcast traffic is going through that one interface on the router. My question is, would breaking up the broadcast domains allow for better speeds? As of now we are not scheduled to upgrade to fiber until a TBA date in the future, I'm trying to find a solution for the short term that will quell everyone's rising anger!
