About our Network at Ascension
Currently Ascensions Network is a gigabit LAN Network, making file transfer's real quick. Our Network throughput peaks at 60 mb / sec per station. This is more then enough for gaming and Information sharing, but speed might slightly drop as more people jump on. Regardless, if you have a 1000mb LAN card installed you should have no issues. No Internet Will be Available at Ascension At this Time

When connecting our servers you will automatically by categorize depending on how much you share. To access our large Server you'll need to share a minimum of a 100 gig through Strong DC+. Anything lower then 100 gig will put you on our Small server. This is simply a precaution to prevent people that share nothing to take advantage. You'll need to share to receive.
