It will differ depending on how you set it up, as well as the resolution of the feed, frames per second, and if the software has compression built in.

If you have the camera directly connected to the recording device it would not use any bandwidth until someone opened the software to remotely view the feed.

Here is a good page with some general bandwidth information to keep in mind as you are planning out your camera setup.
