Bandwidth is how much pipe you need (upstream) to support x concurrent listeners at y kbps Transfer is how much data x listeners at y kbps would transfer in a given period of time. So 128k * 10 (1,280 Kbps or about ~1.2Mbps) would be the needed upload speed to support 10 listeners at 128kbps. If 10 listeners are connected 24 hours a day for a month at 128kbps, they will have downloaded 405 GigaBytes of data from you.
