I would never get any residential broadband service that does not provide unlimited downloads. It is very easy to download multiple gigabytes in a day. One Linux DVD image is 4GB. One HD video for a TV show is 1-2GB. In my opinion, neither of these are suitable, although you may be limited in your selection if $15 is your maximum price point. I pay about $60 USD for 5-6mbps speed and unlimited downloads. A 1.5mbps bandwidth (and unlimited downloads) is about $30 USD.

So, assuming that these two plans are your options and $15 is your budget limit, I think I would go with plan II since it has a monthly price cap. However, you will probably find that unless you are only doing simple email (no attachments/photos, etc) and web browsing, you will quickly far exceed the basic cap, and will be paying close to the maximum, or hitting the 2GB overage limit. My advice is to pay a bit more for an unlimited plan. You will probably save $$ over time by paying $30/month instead of $15.

The question should be "which one is better", since neither is particularly good. If you are only doing web browsing, email (few, small attachments), and such (no streaming video or audio, then I'd go with the 1.5GB plan. They both state that speeds are "wireless speeds", whatever that means. Is the connection 3G, 4G, WiMax, or what?
