I thought that the virgin broadband $39 pm for 10 gb would suit me but sometimes have 4 wireless devises running.
Will this be a problem?
The amount of devices you have logged into a particular broadband account won't automatically use more GB from your plan – it's all about what each of those devices is doing. For example, if you are only checking your emails on your computer, but somebody else is streaming lots of video on another computer logged into the system, 10GB probably won't be enough for you and you might want to consider another plan.
The other thing to keep in mind is that sometimes if you have a lot of wireless devices online being used at the same time, your internet speed might not be as fast as if there was only one. This varies according to what each wireless device is doing and how long it is online. You can try and keep the speed down by shutting other programs in the background and/or waiting until nobody else is online when you want to download something bigger.
If you feel like 10GB isn't going to be enough for you, there are some other great and inexpensive plans you can look into.
