We use mobile broadband cards to connect remotely and they have no problem. We can print and access files on the server. The only issue I would see with the slower bandwidth would be the graphics being sent to the remote computer.

Honestly what you are asking is an impossible question to answer.
Bandwidth requirements change based on the apps being used, on how much printing is done, on how many pages you print on average per print job, how the link is being share for other things like email, web surfing, etc.
What we do on TS/RDS is to use PERFMON (Performance Monitor - built in tool on any Windows Server) and collect data for a day or two on the RDP-tcp listener. That will give you the exact number of how much RDP traffic happened. You will also collect the number of sessions running so you end up with a graph that will show number of users and bandwidth over time.
This will give you exactly what users are using in your particular environment.
