Default Monthly bandwidth usage

I want to begin hosting the Vent server for my World of Warcraft guild. My main concern is bandwidth: I don't want to explode and have Comcast send me a nasty letter. I was hoping someone could give me a rough idea of the kind of numbers I could expect per month.

I expect to have anywhere from 20-50 people on the server at prime times, most of them in the same channel.

I know it's not an exact science, but I was hoping to get a ballpark figure. Something like less than 20 gigs, or more than 45.

Thanks!

the free, personal server is limited to 8 clients. greater than this one will need to rent from a professional hosting company.
