I've scalped on NT7 with my iPhone hotspot with maybe 3-4 MB/sec connection speed and 100 ms latency, and orders take maybe 1/2 second to turn green. This has never been a problem even with aggressive scalping. I do always make sure I have SL in place in case the connection dies.

Loosing a connection is far worse than slow speed.
