We just wrapped up PyCon 2010, with around 600 (out of 1,000) attendees simultaneously accessing the volunteer-run network, and response has been fairly positive. 2.4GHz (802.11b/g) continues to be problematic, but most users were on 5.2GHz and associating at 130mbps (with a 100mbps link to the net). My PyCon 2010 wrap-up reveals all the secrets of how we did it, including pretty bandwidth and user graphs.
Thus mathematics may be defined as the subject in which we never know
what we are talking about, nor whether what we are saying is true.
