Of course the figures will vary totally differently depending upon the
bandwidth settings on the server?

Upstream is more important than downstream for the BF server. 30 players

on our server pushes about 4Mbs up, while using less than 1Mbps down. If

your upstream is slower than a T1 (1.54Mbps), I can't imagine it being 
good for more than 10-15 players.
