I'm just curious...

I'm sure the limit used to be 30 calculators - I remember thinking you'd need two networks, given the typical 33* pupils in a UK classroom when I was at school.

In this thread Tim mentions 60 in passing (but is it conceivable that is a test of the WiFi loading of two networks, not what a single network can handle? ).

In another thread, Cyrille mentions 40 calculators.

So, has the old limit of 30 calculators been upgraded?

*Recent statistics are unclear. I have seen reference to a legal limit of 30, but also to statistics and news reports higher (up to 46 for maths classes
