Depending on the bandwidth improvements in the netcode I can see 4.8Kbps
ending up using approx the same bandwith usage as with UT2003.

Depanding on the codec 4.8Kbs may not be bad, Speex at 5.2Kbps sounds
reasonably good, and at 9.3Kbps it sounds good, better than many cell

Since clan members sometimes keep chatting even though they are on
different servers, I'll probably keep running our TeamSpeak server.
