It depends on what they are doing.  If it was just basic email, you could almost get by on dial-up.  If they are all watching videos, then you need as much as you can afford.

This page from Netflix shows their recommendations for video bandwidth for a single user: https://help.netflix.com/en/node/306   If half of your users (75) are downloading / viewing a medium resolution movie your bandwidth requirement would be 225 Mbps plus overhead so maybe 250 Mbps to 300 Mbps.

Your intranet speed should be 1GBps to minimize it's effect on the internet speed.
