I like to think of it in listener-hours. 30,000 GB at 128 kbps gives you about 520,000 listener-hours per month. That could translate into:

1 person listening for 520,000 hours (ridiculous of course) = 520,000 listener-hours
520,000 listeners (way beyond the server capacity) listening for 1 hour each = 520,000 listener-hours
1000 listeners listening for 520 hours each = 520,000 listener-hours
520 listeners listening for 1000 hours each = 520,000 listener-hours

Your 1 Gbps connection can practically handle about 6000 simultaneous listeners with an 80% load factor. If you loaded your server to the max 24/7 then you would run out of bandwidth in about 90 hours..
