You usually should be able to do this without any issues but it depends on your upload/download speed. You are probably looking at approx 120Kbit/s upload for the highest quality of voice data. (G711) Most broadband connections exceed this and if not you can always try a lower speed codec. (G729) with very little loss of quality if any.

If you do a lot of downloading at high speed (maxing out your connection) then you may have problems but this can be resolved by using a router with QoS (Quality of Service) features and setting them up to give priority to VOIP traffic.
