What kind of internet connection do you have down there? Satellite I'm assuming?
Yes. Palmer actually has the best bandwidth/person ratio, at 1.5mbit up and down. And it's only shared with the station locally, so web surfing and things are never a problem. And as long as you're not a dick about high-bandwidth activities (P2P and stuff is blocked, but VPNs aren't . . .), only restricting them to the night hours or something, you can do plenty.
McMurdo has a 10mbit up/down connection, but it's shared with up to 1200 people. South Pole is a 1.5mbit for up to ~250 people, and it only works for 12 hours per day. Well, as much as they actually have "days" at Pole.
