Re: Bandwidth usage vs phpBB
In my opinion it would require less bandwidth as this was the first thing I noticed when I switched over from phpBB to bbPress myself. I would imagine this is due to the fact that bbPress is less ‘bloated’ with code in the core, but if you use a bunch of plugins, this can get you back up again. The database structure is less and the number of calls is less, but that has nothing to do with bandwidth.
The data served is about the same.
I think it is less, others have a comment on this?
