It all would depend on your personal usage, do some math on what you download a week, and see.

I used to live in SA and had 3gb limit, yes you heard right, was a bitch, never downloaded anything, just played games online and used to hit my limit 3-5 days short of the next month. Those 3-5 days ironically were there most productive days of the month.

Now over here I hit 10gigs a day some times.

A dvd is about 4.5 gb. So unless your downloading avi files you could run out mate.
As above, do a check on how much you normally use

As stated it can depend on the type of film you are downloading.

BD rips are even bigger than DVD ISOs, for example Equilibrium in 1080p is around the 8Gb mark and Fifth Element in 1080p is over 10Gb!

It can also depend on the encoding: TV rips, even though only in 720p can be over 4Gb when encoded in WMV HD (cf. ~1.5Gb for the .mkv version)
