Question Web server and sDSL

Currently my NT server is across town at a local ISP. I am at college with an ethernet connection to dual T1 lines. When I download files (FTP) from my server I get a max of 70k/sec. I think this is due to some bottlenecking on the network that my ISP has my server hooked up to.

I am considering installing a 384Kbps sDSL line installed in my house and running my server off of that. Is that a practical way to run a server? Is it enough bandwidth? My site currently gets 80,000 page views per month and I want to be able to grow to atleast 600,000 page views on the same connection.

my site is http://www.guavamail.com

Much thanks

Well, since sDSL is same upload as download speed, then the max you can let your users download is at 384Kbps (kilobits) , or around 40k (kilobytes) a second.

Meaning..... the max a person can download from you is 30k a second. Now if two people were downloading from you, they'd go around 15k a second.

My DSL provider has agreed to give me as many IP's as I need (within reason).

Yes, they figure when I'm paying them a fair $$$ for the DSL line they can give me 10 or 15 IP's with no problems. I asked about this and they conceded I don't believe it's part of the standard package. I told them that I was planning on running my web server on the line and thus would want a some IP's
