Reduce or controle data traffic for a ajaxify drupal site

Hi guys,

I once again need your help.

I have an auction site just launch using drupal as base structure.
This site have a feature which is checking for update to prices and numbers of bidders every 10 seconds or more.

However due to this every 10s updates, the site use almost 2TB of data traffic each month and sometimes more than that.
Yes you read it right, 2000 GB or 2 million MB of data traffic.

My question is, how can i reduce this data traffic usage?

I already use a separate php file which call DRUPAL_BOOTSTRAP_DATABASE only, which means i do not call the whole drupal installation yet.

Please help me.
Thank you.
