I'm going to be moving out with 3 others, so in total there will be 4 of us, I was just wondering, would £200 for 12 months (£17 per month) be enough to get a good internet.
-We do have lots of devices and will likely be streaming videos often
-We are likely going to download big files from time to time but not often.
what would a good internet speed be?

Well, first of all, it really depends on where you live and what kind of speed is available to you. My significant other and I would love to have gotten 200 Mbps and would have paid the price, but all we can get is 10 Mbps (honestly, what a pisstake).
Once you've figured out what speed is available to where you will live, then think about the usage. If you're going to be streaming videos often and downloading some big files, 100 Mbps should be more than enough.
Is the £200 per month for internet or just in general? £200 a month is more than enough, internet doesn't cost THAT much. Just have a look at your providers and then figure out what is best for you.
Far more than enough. I got loads of devices at home and get tv including bt sport, broadband and calls for 55 quid a month. 200 is hugely overkill.
£200 is far more than you need. Even the most expensive Internet packages come to around £50 a month. Check what's available, but between 4 people I'd expect you each to be paying at most £10-15 a month.
Does anyone have virgin media and would anyone recommend it
£17 is enough for sufficient speeds to download/stream from multiple devices.
My household currently pays £23/month for around 40Mbps and there's 6 of us in the household (landline & broadband).
This was a new contract with Vodafone.
You'll just need to shop around but there are definitely deals that will suffice for your needs for the £17/month that you have.
It's also worth noting that providers usually charge a one time start-up/joining fee.
Varies from company but it's usually around an additional £10-£30.
