Well, I've got a dialup and a 56K connection, and it usually works.  I do 
tie up the phone every evening while I'm online, so it doesn't matter if I 
also listen to something.  Right now I'm listening to WMUA in Amherst.  I 
generally listen to the BBC online or on WBUR these days, less often on 
shortwave because of the reception quality.
