Whole offices work fine with a "mere" bonded T1 at 10Mbps. Admitted it's symmetrical and is more stable. But regarding speed it's quite a bit slower than the mentioned 100Mbps home internet.
Depends on the office and the user profile at home. I would be very unhappy and so would my coworkers behind a bonded T1 at 10 Mbps. However, I do admit I think my 70 Mbps at home will probably be adequate for a few years to come.
