How does the Apple Remote Desktop program stack up on speed?

I've tried a couple free software packages for remote desktop work. There was WinVNC, Chicken of the VNC, and OSX VNC. All of this was painfully, unacceptably, slow when we tried to run it from outside the office.

So if need be, I'm sure the company money men would be willing to cough up money for a commercial solution. Can Apple Remote Desktop software run reasonably fast from a remote location? We have a fractional T3 line in the office, and I believe the remote user has cable internet.
