Way of saving BW
There are three key ways to optimize your bandwidth usage:
1. Keep your pages as small as possible.
This means tight HTML programming to reduce file size, and compacting your pictures and graphics to reduce image size (NetMechanic has a free, easy-to-use file compression utility). Use the JPEG image format for your photos and the GIF format for graphics - their compression abilities are second to none.
Dr. HTML's site has useful tools that will analyze your site's image sizes, transfer amounts, table structure and more.
2. Use images that aren’t stored on your site.
You can do this by replacing the file name in your <IMG SRC> tag with a URL that gives the location of the image you want to use. Before doing this, however, make sure you have the permission of the site you are linking to. Otherwise, you’re stealing bandwidth, which is considered pirating and is therefore illegal (for more information, see “How can I prevent bandwidth theft?” below).
3. Use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).
Another effective way to save bandwidth is to use CSS. Designed to reduce HTML file size, CSS attribute values for any HTML element/command at the beginning of the document, rather than repeating them throughout.
For more information on CSS and other resources related to bandwidth conservation, visit Infohiway or the SitePoint CSS Tutorial.

actually thats not bad.
But I would like to add something as well.
If possible .zip your files.
This will reduce your file size, and save you bandwidth as well.
