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.....".

An unmetered Bandwidth refers to the speed of the data transfer. The amount of data transfer is bot monitored, hence if you get a 50 MBPS unmetered bandwidth plan, your website's speed is limited to 50 Mbps, and that's about it.
There is no limit on how much data you want to transfer under 50Mbps bandwidth speed. If you bought a 100Mbps plan, then you can use it all day long, this is the beauty of unmetered bandwidth. Also, there is no upper limit, so there is no chance of exhausting the data.
High-traffic websites can opt for the unmetered bandwidth option, it is recommendable.
 
Unmetered bandwidth is bandwidth that is not subject to any type of usage restrictions. This includes data that you upload, download, or stream without having to worry about the amount of data that you use. This type of bandwidth can be a huge advantage for online users who need to use large amounts of data without worrying about using up their monthly allotment.

Unemetered has become more or less a standard in the web hosting industry in my opinion. But some providers still cap bandwidth limits so I suppose it all depends on the network provider. DDoS is the biggest issue I deal with now a days.

Unmetered bandwidth allows for the use of all of the web server's available resources. The term "bandwidth" is also also used to refer to the speed at which data is sent to and received from a server each second. Actually, this speed is referred to as uplink speed.

Unmetered consumers have a fixed transfer rate, usually represented in Mbps, which protects them from exceeding the monthly bandwidth cap. In a hosting plan with unlimited bandwidth, you are not required to use it all the time.

Bandwidth is the amount of data (in bits and bytes) that a computer can transfer in any given amount of time. In hosting, it’s usually measured in seconds.

Unmetered bandwidth is what unlimited bandwidth wants to be. The amount of data transfer isn’t observed. So, if you have a 50Mbps unmetered bandwidth plan, your speed is limited to 50Mbps, and that’s about it.

That is the core of unmetered bandwidth, a simple flat price for a given speed. So you don’t have to stress how much data your servers transfer.

Basically unlimited and unmetered are looking mirror vice verse. Unlimited is a gimmick word and there are lots thing hidden inside of this word and not elaborated clearly. Whether unmetered is explained perfectly accurate and emerge the details of the bandwidth exact amount, such as 1 to 100Gbps, on other hand unlimited bandwidth capped the speed most of the times.
