I'd actually try and have both. Assuming the price is right of course.

I currently have a pfSense box routing my home network and would love to take advantage of its dual WAN features and have a VDSL/cable connection with a small (~20GB p/m) data cap and then an unlimited 2/512 ADSL plan. I'd consider 2/512 as 'slow' in this case.

I'd then setup my leech on the unlimited ADSL plan and browse etc... on the faster plan.

I get that.  I just don't get your 700Mbps as the fast option though?

I would pick slow and unlimited, but it would really depend on how slow.  55kbps?  No way.  I had unlimited 56kbps when I had dial-up, why would I go back?  I used to get 5kBps I guess which if my maths is correct (often not) equates to 12GB per month going flat tack.  I'll stick with my 20GB @ 16Mbps I think.

If it were unlimited 2Mbps, I might be interested but it would depend on cost.  I'm happy with my cost right now, but if I could download more for free I probably would.

I would never choose one with a limit, but if the fast one had reasonable overage, I would choose that over slow but flat rate.
