Yup. Check with your leased line provider about the capacity to 'burst'
data - quite often they say a line is 64/128/256/512 Kb/s with a
facility to 'burst' up to double the capacity for a percentage of the
time it is running. Provided your bursts don't exceed that percentage
it'll just keep on happening... which is nice :-)
