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.
