Anyone explain unmetered bandwidth ?

If a hosting company offers unmetered bandwidth, it means that they're offering a set amount of bandwidth (for example, 1Gbps) that you can use as much as you'd like. The maximum server speed is limited, but the amount of data you can transfer is not.

... and you are lying to because there is always a limit to how much data transfer a system can handle and the optic fiber can handle. Try by yourself and rent a dedicated server at one of those false unmetered bandwidth advertisers and make a script which is sending data to another server continuously and you will see when they are blocking you.

Unmetered for me means we don't meassure the amount of bandwidth you're using but if your usage bothers other customers we will warn and if needed throttle you :)

There is no monthly bandwidth limit for unmetered bandwidth, but there is a maximum port size.
On a 1Gbps link, for example, you can send and receive unlimited data.

When you're a game maker, a media company that broadcasts video and audio to wide audiences, a news media platform, a news blog, an eCommerce shop, or a company that generates a lot of data, this bandwidth can be very useful.

Unmetered is a marketing gimmick. Sure it sounds nice, but in the end, you have a max port speed anyway. With most providers there will be some sort of "fair usage" for unmetered connections. So its not really "unmetered" in that sense.

As for myself, i rather specify what is guaranteed and not suprise customers with "you exceeded the fair use of your unmetered.....".
