Bandwidth for accessing terminal server via 3G

I need to connect to my terminal server using a 3G-enabled netbook for up to 8 hours a month.  Both I and the terminal server are in the UK.  The 3G provider (Vodafone) offers various tariffs, depending on how much bandwidth I need, for example 1Gb a month, 3Gb a month, etc.  The 8 hours will usually be spent connected to a single, fairly-complex Access 2003 application, with 30Mb front-end and 60Mb back-end.  

The netbook will be running XP Pro.  The TS is on Windows Server 2003, professionally hosted, with super-fast broadband and all the trimmings.

Can anyone please give me an idea of the likely bandwidth requirement?  I do not envisage downloading any printed reports - I shall mostly be supporting other TS users by taking control of their sessions.

Monitor usage using a normal internet connection.. do what you would consider average to above average then decide from there.

under 128kbps, should handle it on 3g, but not so well on GPRS

I wouldn't imagine more than 768mb per month either

Thanks for you advice guys.  In view of what you say, I shall go for a 2Gb/month plan initially.
