By "broadband memory" I assume you mean amount of stuff downloaded from the internet (I notice you are in Australia, and know that they charge for that there). Unfortunately, the answer is potentially complicated. If TileProxy was keeping up with your flying, than there is no additional downloading to be had. But if you were outrunning what TileProxy was trying to do before, than it will be able to keep up now, and you will end up downloading more.Another thing to note is that once you cache the data into your service.cache folder, it won't download that information again. Don't forget that if you are getting near your monthly quota, you can switch to "offline mode" and just fly with the textures you already have downloaded for the rest of the month.
