You can estimate it by answering these few questions :

1) How many people do you expect to visit the site in a month ?
2) What is the average size of each page (including graphics) ?

You can always start out on a smaller plan with you ISP and upgrade to a larger bandwith one, if you need it.

i would have to say at least 15 to 20 hits a
day (estimated) as far as the size of the
pages i dont have that info right now but i
would have to guess 150,000 to 200,000 bytes

That is no problem then...any ISP offering a 1000MB tranfer/Mo (standard) should do. There are plenty such webspace providers available for $10-$20.
