Are you connected to a single ISP at a single geographic location?  If 
so it probably isn't worth the effort.

If you are connected to multiple ISPs, the BGP configuration may not be 
so minimal and you'll likely want to engage the services of someone 
knowledgeable in the field to configure and maintain as needed.

Do you have an AS (Autonomous System) number assigned by your regional 
registry?  Do you have portable IP space?  If both are no, and you're 
only connected to one ISP, you almost certainly don't need to run BGP. 
A simple default route to your ISP will suffice.
