The game typically downloads your game data when you login to Steam and uploads it when you close it. Typically the amount of space they give you for each game is pretty small. I haven't found it to be bandwidth intensive.

EDIT: it seems they have expanded it. It used to be 1MB/user but now each user gets 100MB per game. For large save game files, it may be bandwidth intensive. So YMMV based on the game.
