There's no way I know of from SQL Server to measure network bandwidth. That's a measure you have to take elsewhere because SQL Server itself doesn't have control over or monitor network packets, etc. You could look at something like [ANTS Performance Profiler][1] to see the calls to the database and how much network resources they consume. But that's done externally to SQL Server. [1]: http://www.red-gate.com/products/dotnet-development/ants-performance-profiler/

In addition.. If you can get a sample of the queries you can use "client statistics" within SSMS. This will show the bytes sent and received by the query.
