Slow Broadband/Call Quality

This is probably a very silly question, but I'm planning to move to a property with an estimated speed of 1.5MB and am wondering whether this low speed will affect the call quality on Vonage, if anyone can help, please?
Many thanks

When I had Covad 1536/384 kbps DSL service, I had no problems with simultaneously using two Vonage lines and still be able to do light web browsing.

It is not the 1.5 mbps downstream (I assume you meant megabits/second and not megabytes/second as the uppercase "B" would indicate) that might be a problem, it would be the unspecified upstream speed that might cause you problems. But if your upstream speed is at least 256 kbps, you should have no problems with making a Vonage call and still being able to to light web browsing at the same time.
