I'd think this would depend entirely on the nature of the users'
internet use (e-mail, web, streaming video?) and the DSL connection
(128kb up/256kb down, 1.5mb both ways?).

Web proxying via Squid and a caching nameserver could mitigate slowness
somewhat, particularly if users would be visiting the same web sites w/
lots of static content.
