Bandwidth Requirements For An Ns Server

Incoming and OutgoingHi all,
I am currently investigating setting up a server for the newly established clan myself and some of my mates have formed. We are based in Australia, the corner of the earth in which bandwidth still costs and arm and a leg, so I have a few questions regarding bandwidth I'm hoping some current server ops can help me out with.
What are the bandwidth requirements for a server to achieve a sub-40ms ping?
As bandwidth in Australia is metered on INcoming traffic and for the most part OUTgoing traffic is unmetered, I'm curious to know what sort of bandwidth a 16 player server with say an average of 8 hours play time a day requires?
Also, what are the neccessary download / upload speeds neccessary to achieve a sub-40ms ping?
I've been told that a server like that would need between 40GB - 60GB OUTgoing traffic a month, but I have as yet not been able to get any hard and fast stats on the INcoming bandwidth.
If anyone can help me out based on their experiences running a server I would be exceedingly grateful.
Thanks in advance guys!
