Much more than SSH can handle with low bandwidth, at least for my
definition of low bandwidth, because it is not compressed.

Black and white ASCII art occupies over 400 kbits/s for the standard 80x25
resolution and 25 frames per seconds on a CP437 console, not counting
Colored ASCII art would consume 3.6 Mbits/s in the same conditions.
