Basically, that is what I do.  I only have a regular old phone modem at home.
I take my home machine in to the office where I have a reliable 100 Mb/s
and do my installs there.   The only problem is fixing up IPs and host

If I ever get rich and get a laptop with significant disk, I can just
carry that and pull everything down to it and take it home to work
on the desktop machine - or I could get one of those nice big USB drives
and download everything to that.
