VPN Bandwidth Requirements

First, let me thank everyone for their assistance with my questions
regarding bandwidth. Your emails have helped me a lot.
I've been doing some more reading on VPNs, and I have learned that VPNs
typically fall into one of 5 classes (Class 0, Class 1, Class 2, Class 3,
and Class 4), with the higher numbered classes normally tailored to larger
companies. It is my understanding, based on what I have read, that the
bandwidth requirement (ie, that which connects to the long haul
backbone)regardless of the class, is typically T1 (though I do realize that
the higher numbered classes can be higher-T3 or OC3, and the lowered
numbered classes can be lower). Would this be a safe assumption?
