I assume that you want a recommendation. A better plan probably means 
spending more money. Would be better for the network. If you can spare the 
money, go for it.

If you dont want to spend more money than it would be a good idea to lower 
the Rate value until you end up within your traffic limit for the month. 
The benefit would be a permanent available relay.
Sincerely yours / Sincères salutations / M.f.G.
