Bandwidth for offsite copy jobs and replication

I know this is a difficult question to answer, however I am looking for some insight perhaps from those who are currently doing this to an offsite location.

I am thinking about doing internal backup copy jobs and replications to an offsite location that would be connected to the main site via a 100MB MPLS connection, right now its only 10MB but I am thinking of upgrading it to 100MB. Does that sound like enough bandwidth to do backup copy jobs and replications. Some of the replicas have anywhere from several to 10GB of changed data. I would physically move the data to the offsite location so the backup copy jobs and replicas would not have to start from scratch.

Depends on the frequency of synchronization, amount of VMs, etc., but this is a kind of link that is often used by our customers for offsite backup/replication. To avoid the need to send the same data twice you may want to consider replication from backups that are sent offsite with the help of backup copy jobs.
