From what I've read, there are three modes of use for the new sim: fully online, cached scenery, and fully offline. So the user will have some control over bandwith usage. Also, the demo computers running this at various PR events have reportedly not been high end machines, but strictly middle of the road gaming rigs. And that's in pre-alpha, before optimization.
Impossible to say until it comes out, but I've been watching this and it really does look promising.
