What is the bandwidth cutoff at which web maps fail to refresh effectively?

We have been historically building web maps using the Viewer for Flex app with ArcGIS Server 10.2.  Recently we have been also testing the new Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS.


While our maps appear to work great in house, we are experiencing screen refresh issues in some of our smaller field offices that have low connection speeds.


What can we do to resolve this?

Are there any settings we can change that will quicken the refresh of the ESRI basemaps?

What is the golden bandwidth speed at which web maps fail to refresh quickly?


Things seem to work fine when the bandwidth is over 12MBps, however its almost none responsive at 3MBps.

Our slower offices average around 6MBps.


What would be considered the minimum for being able to effectively use a web map?


Note that our internet is all pumped through the main office via a I believe a "VPM" line.
