Unless you are a hefty, +40G downloader a month, I would start on the lower package and then upgrade if a) your uncomfortable with just how much you know you are downloading or b) they ask you to upgrade due to exceeding 40G.
(I cannot see gaming performance being better on Max.)
The contract allows you to upgrade (but not downgrade for 12months)
Why pay £10 when £5 will do?
My 2p worth!

ok thanks anyway can you explain what ping is

Ping put very simply is how many milli seconds it takes a remote server to respond to your request, the faster the better for gaming.

One thing worth thinking about is if you are into heavy downloads and what have you, be careful when using the 360s marketplace as well, a lot of the demos weigh in at over 1 gig.
In spite of what i`ve mentioned 40 gig should be more than enough, oh and XBL is not very heavy on bandwidth, you would have to be on it 24/7 now i vaguely remember seeing a chart which broke down how many hours worth of XBL time 1 gig is worth and if i remember correctly 1 gig equates to approx 4 hours of XBL time, if i come across the chart i`ll link it

On a 40 gig cap you can go on XBL as much as you like as its not heavy on the bandwidth, when i was with BT Yahoo i had a 40 gig cap and over the 4 years i never once exceeded the cap and i was downloading all sorts and hammering XBL.

Re: unimited or 40gig cap
I game on Xbox Live all the time, i've never exceeded my cap.
The caps are there as guidelines, and although they are checked, it's rare that you will be charged unless you go way over the limit set on your package.
You will recieve three warning emails also, before any action is taken against you, if any at all.
