I ask because my family does not want their internet slowed down too much.

In IRC yesterday we had a discussion about this, it takes about a average of 150MB on a mildly populated server, upwards of 250 on a popular one. Running a minecraft server will slow down your internet.

hmmm... thanks. This means I will no longer be able to host a 24/7 server unless I go and buy one. ;)

I found I was using approx 20KBytes/s of upstream (~160kbit or 0.16Mbit) with 10 players connected to the server, but you will need atleast 2Mbit/s so that people can connect and (a) download the map in a reasonable time (:P not lag out the people playing when someone connects.
