Hi there,

You can calculate your bandwidth requirements based on the size of your pages, and how much people you expect to visit your website.
For Example, suppose you have a website where average page size is 2kB, and each page contains graphics of combined size 5kB. Now you expect that your website will have 100 visitors daily, and each visitor will view 3 pages on average. Then you need monthly (2kB + 5 kB) * 100 visitors * 3 pages * 30 days = 63 MB of bandwidth.

Just multiply your website weight (kB/MB) on expected amount of visitors.
