The thing is, I've noticed that this may cause a high amount of bandwidth from even a single user. Apart from changing the timer on the refresh rate, does anyone have any ideas how I might lower the bandwidth usage?
Have a store procedure at the database end only pushing stuff out when required?
That would be ideal, unfortunately I'd need to use asp or another server-side scripting language, which are unavailable on the servers I'm currently running. Probably isn't an alternative in that case.

Tbh the bandwidth shouldn't be that high if it's only serving text. Even with hundreds of users you are still only going to be serving the most basic of data.
If you have a copy of the script I'll happily test it on a test environment to test bandwidth usage.
