A bridge is the first hop of a bridge-using client, followed by the
other regular hops for a Tor circuit.
The bridge's upload and download will directly correspond to the
upload/download of the specific user(s) of your bridge.
(Plus some overhead for directory requests etc)

So if your bridge's internet connection can handle another user next to
you, it can handle the bridge.
