It likely depends on your ISP.  I have DSL at home and am running 2 web 
sites on one of the computers here (k6ccc.org and w6sce.org).  There is 
a streaming audio feed that feeds audio from a scanner to however many 
people are connected (I have had as many as 21 during a pursuit).
I get about 750 Kb/s inbound, and 160 Kb/s.  I don't have anything large 
on the site (for somewhat obvious reasons).  The primary reason for the 
sites are to do things that can't be done from my Earthlink site (like 
the straming audio feed).
