Not necessary if the customer doesn't have the performance requirements then he/she will be only able to service less loads and such.

It's how "100TB" and "unmetered" bandwidth (really transfer) providers sometimes works. Because they allocate "limits" that you will likely not be able to reach to any real capacity.

Now if you really paid up for a 100TB transfer server then yes you will likely be able to use up that amount. Even reputable unmetered providers will allow you to use their pipes as you need.
