The largest size I have seen was one meg (2o person game). Less than 1/2 meg seems to be normal.

The filesize can get over the 1 meg mark when there are large scale battles involved because of the combat logs especially

Generally speaking the files are ~300k for most turns

Files also are also bigger in larger quadrants with many systems.

I never even thought about people with slow connection playing PBW, that could get to be a heahache.
The largest game turn I've had thus far is 800K. There must have been a few battles going on as that same game is only around 3 or 400K now.
