Unlimited bandwidth ?

Any suggestions on unlimited bandwidth hosting provider for file hosting ?

Pfff...it's a myth. Unlimited bandwidth is not technically possible. You still have a limited disc space (which is not mentioned by a provider) and can easily be kicked off the server once you reach this limit.
I don't trust such offers. I'd better pay a bit for a decent VPS (if I'm on a budget) and sleep well at night.

<MOD NOTE: Edited for self-promotion.>

Whoever promises "unlimited" bandwidth usually sets hidden terms of service. I would suggest you to get a server with 100 Mbps unmetered Internet port.

Do you need unmetered maybe? A lot of providers can offer this something such as 1Gbps unmetered or 100Mbps unmetered so you don't have to worry about burst charges.

Otherwise unlimited isn't really a thing as there is always limitations.

If you are thinking that with unlimited bandwidth you can transfer as much data as you want to, then you are wrong. Unlimited bandwidth also comes with limits and those limits are defined by the hosting provider. In fact, it isn't possible for any hosting company to offer unlimited bandwidth.

i think you should ask your provider to see what is their fair use policy because many providers have fair policy usages

As just about everyone has said, be very cautious of companies offering 'unlimited' anything.

This is a good point, we used to have a phone provider who actually did offer unlimited free data, but their fair usage policy kicked in and automatically throttled the connection to a much lower speed if you used too much too fast in any 24 hour period.

Yes nothing is unlimited. i.e. If your provider has a 30GB drive then they have a 30GB limit and if you pay $400 for the server and you offer an unlimited plan for $5 then technically you are saying to that client for your $5 you can fill up the whole 30GB drive.
