I wouldn’t recommend running a public game server from a home line because it’s simply not reliable enough for any type of server which is not a good offer for your players. Renting a dedicated virtual server can run around \$20-\$50 per month.

A Minecraft server running 20-30 people will transfer around 300gb of data in 1 month, using approximately 1mbps. Therefor, a server running 10 people will push/pull 100gb minimum per month at around 500kbps.
