It depends on which direction the most data is being transmitted when they are playing th egame: to your xbox or from it.

Remember, the 1MB speed increase is only for data going from the internet to you, the speed at which you send data out has not changed and is still 256Kbits/s. If more users produce more outgoing data from your xbox you may not be able to do what you are asking.

nope its the upload speed thats the player limiter, so until BT allows for higher than 256k for home connections then hosting on a UK DLS line just isnt viable with a Good ping.

What it will help is that you can run more pc's online for viewing webpages/downloads as long as nothing much is being uploaded. Which is why I want it but cant get it as I use a second Montior pc for a game server I admin. So having that extra bandwidth would help as using VNC can be a lag inducer.

lo,most game servers will allow about 8-10k per user for bandwidth,as you are setting your xbox up as a server best performance you can get will be with no more than 4 players connected to it.at a push 6 players should be ok but will give a lot of lag in bigger fights.512 upload speed would be ok but its still gonna be way short of dedicated games servers for bandwidth.256 is fine for a couple of mates having a laugh but for serious hosting your looking at a 10mbps connection at the very least.
