Cient with with 20 AP 350
There is a policy to guarentee 5000 kb/s for each user but there is not enough bandwidth to supply that to all wireless users. Is it better to lower it to 2500 kb/s

In most 'general user' deployment scenarios you would just want enable airtime fairness that works through the dynamic airtime scheduling feature and would not need to offer a 'guaranteed' minimum.

What use case do you have in mind that needs this minimum? There are specific use cases where you have a subset of clients that need special treatment but it does not usually apply generally.

I guess my question is really of the form: What observable problem are you trying to solve?
