As long as you are only hosting out basic webpages, then a 384kb/s line
is fine. Web traffic is usually pretty minimal per connection. If you
are hosting out something more advanced, such as flash, or large files
continually, then you will want more bandwidth.
Is this connection going to be shared for the whole office, or is this a
dedicated line for the webserver? If you have other people behind that
line, then you will probably notice slowdowns.
