Something to guess off of might be the size of the csv file from RBN
on a contest day, for instance first day of CW WPX on 30 May is 187
Meg in size and contains 2949875 lines.

So multiply by some estimate of connected users getting that data and
it easily can get to a few hundred Gig of network traffic.  Best to
have a land line for that.
