No they are totally different and treated different.

I disagree for reasons I already stated.

Unlimited : Although it is unlimited, hosting provider will set certain limit to maximum usage of bandwidth, but in case usage is exceeds the maximum limit service will be suspended.

Unmetered : Same in this unmetered also usually bandwidth is not monitored closely and less chances of suspension of services as exceeding limits.

Hello Team,

Unlimited Bandwidth is not a real word. That depends on the requirement of customer that how much bandwidth they need. In a Month how much bandwidth consumed by your site, so you purchase your bandwidth according to your site need. Almost all servers hosting provider using capping system (to assign per Mbps limit).

The only benefit with saying you give unlimited bandwidth is that lets say you only have a 5GB bandwidth plan and this is used up in the first 2 days, your site will go down and just display a message ' this site has exceeded its monthly bandwith allowance' and will remain like this until your next billing cycle or you pay to increase your BW allowance, but with unlimited your site will remain up no matter how much BW you use, but the fact is the host has to pay for the BW.
so lets say you pay $100 a month for a server and offer unlimited plans for $10 a month, then technically someone can take out a $10 plan and use up all the server resources.

I found a better way was to give clients a set allowance and then charge an overage fee for anything over the allowance (we had ours set at £2 a GB). This means their site still remains up, we made sure we has warnings set up so clients got a warning when their space or bandwidth reached 60% and then every 5% thereafter.

In Unmetered Bandwidth company offers a set of Bandwidth (E.g. 1Gbps) where you can use unlimited as you want. The maximum server speed is limited, but the amount of data you can transfer is not.

The amount of data that a server is able to transfer in a specific amount of time is called as bandwidth.

Unmetered hosting doesnít mean that you can get unlimited traffic on your website. You always get limited traffic, practically but other factors: time and throughput.

When a hosting company offers unmetered bandwidth, it means that they offer a definite amount of bandwidth (for example, 1Gbps) that you can use as much as you want to. You get limited maximum server speed, but the data you can transfer is unlimited.

In a metered bandwidth, the host monitors the amount of data used by you and charges you as per the amount per month. So, the more are your site visitors, the more you will be charged.

The host doesnít monitor unmetered hosting. It means you can transfer unlimited amount for data but at a limited speed. So, in this case, the you arenít charged for the data you use but are charged with a predictable flat rate.

Unmetered bandwidth a bandwidth which is not measured. You are permitted to use the unmetered bandwidth unless you are not causing any problem to your clients on the host server.

I tend to describe it as follows:

Unlimited bandwidth simply doesn't exist. Bandwidth costs are expensive and it's crazy to let your clients know that you're giving them 'unlimited' bandwidth.

On the other hand, unmetered bandwidth can exist. It can be simply put in context: "you can use X amount of bandwidth per month, we don't really care because we can scale". It's overselling to an extent, but you're not technically limiting something since unlike hardware, bandwidth capacity can be upgraded just by getting more by paying for more upstream.

In practice, both are horrible. Implementing a fair-use clause in your terms of service is a good way to avoid a headache caused by abusive users.
