Terminal Server 2008 Slowness Issue and recommendations

hi experts
    we have a deployment where 5-6 users access all there data trough terminal server
The users are real-estate agents and they use internet, Emails, download images etc on the terminal server

The main office is getting a download speed of 300KB/s with a line of 2.5Mbps

The internet download speed at the remote site where these users are is 700KB/s

Now the issue is that the users report the connection to be very slow and they are expecting it to be realtime

The server is performing relaxed as i have monitored the performance and i believe it’s not the server but the internet speed

The OS is server 2008 R2, Desktop experience enabled as was required by the users.

I plan to propose them an internet plan upgrade but last thing we want is no performance boost after upgrading as well

Has anyone had  experience with a similar setup,,,,
Which is the best way to go about it...

What is the recommended internet speed for an optimal terminal server session
