I concur. Residential connections have extremely low upstream speeds, downspeed really does not matter. Using SBC DSL I get 2.5mbps up and .43mbps down. Keep in mind that mbps is megaBITS per second, 1/8th of a megabyte. This works fine for residential internet since it doesn't send large amounts of data out, but running a server would be impossible. You will need at least a T1 line to be able to host a server (which costs more than a good VPS).
I currently have a Windows VPS with Liquidweb and couldn't be happier. They are on the pricey side but the quality is unmatched.
