I also have a company that does web/email hosting.  I have about 35
domains running off a single 768k DSL line right now and the speeds are
fine.  But I also have a matched 768k upload speed, just make sure your
upload is right with your download speed.  I think you should be fine
with a single site and 2 lines.  And typically your web traffic won't
increase until everyone goes home from school.  So you heavy traffic to
the site won't come when you have heavy internet surfing traffic.

My 2 cents.
