how large your space is has nonthing to do with bandwidth


a good rule of thumb

is 1GB for every 100,000 hits for the average website (mix of text an images)

if you are serving up large images and or multimedia files then this figure would be much different

this is only a rough guess as only you know what your traffic will be and the files that you serve

Depends on how active your website is, which is affected by how much it is advertised.

If you have a site that is going to be advertised on a national tv channel you're going to use a lot of bandwidth. If the only people who know about it are a few friends, you won't need any.

Generally, most new sites use very little until they grow in popularity.

Bandwidth is how much data transfer your account is allowed. Lets say you have 10GB of bandwidth, and 20 people download a 500MB file, you have reached your limit on bandwidth. Bandwidth highly depends on what your site has on it, and how many people come to it.
