Yes - This is certainly possible. But, If the only clients will be
connecting from your office - I probably wouldn't go this route.

What's a "regular internet connection"? 1Mb/s, 10Mb/s, 100Mb/s?

The AMQP protocol is fairly lean, I'm betting your internet connection will
be the bottleneck.

Will I be charged by `Amazon` for the bandwidth / messages that flow

Yes - Amazon charges for all data in/out of EC2, they don't care that its
your office .. all they see is the traffic is leaving EC2..
