If you're talking about data communication bandwidth (the number of bits going over the ADSL-line or between your wireless router and the device) it's fully determined by the source. That sends the whole picture, and the browser scales it to what it needs.

With an iPad it's a little bit more complicated. With the new high-resolution display (more pixels) an app may decide to load a higher resolution picture, which has more bits to uses more bandwidth.
