Expected bandwidth utilized by a hotspot is 1-5 kb/s (about the size of a long text message). The hotspot uses data for two main things, to maintain a view of the global Helium Network, and send and receive data packets for sensors that are in range and using your piece of the Helium Network. In both instances, the total amount of data usage is extremely small and will never affect your network quality.
This is the most common question. And for good reason. Security of networks is the highest priority. Please refer to this Network Security overview for information on what Helium does to keep the Helium Network safe and protected. All hotspots comply with FCC regulations.
