Windows 7: What internet speed is good enough for using Windows Remote Desktop

What internet speed is good enough for using Windows Remote Desktop

Hello, I am looking for a new cable/dsl internet provider and I would like to know really what speed is "good enough" for using Windows Remote Desktop. Since I don't want to pay extra for internet speed that I don't really use.

For example, ATT UVerse has plans of 3, 12, and 18 Mbps (download speeds)

while Comcast/Xfinity has 6, 25, 50 Mbps

Does anyone have any suggestions or experience with such speeds with Windows Remote Desktop? Thank you

I just quickly looked at the lan speed with remote desktop and the highest peak I seen was less than 1 MB/s . Not sure if that info will help you since its over a lan cable and not going threw the internet
