Does this mean that all unlimited hosting plans are terrible? Not necessarily, but they are often very misleading. That’s why it’s a good idea to be wary of hosting companies that claim to offer unlimited bandwidth and always read their terms of service.
I'm sorry. Being in the business for a long time I was thinking of only what is possible. Unmetered bandwidth being the amount of data being transferred is not monitored. Only the server resources are monitored and when there is an issue the admin would address it.
The same with unlimited bandwidth. The amount of data transfer is not monitored by an admin; only the server resources.
They are both the same meaning (concerning what is being offered) as there is truly no such thing as unlimited, it is all just a service that isn't monitored. The reason why they say unlimited is because it is attractive to somebody. There is no limit set on the account until it becomes an issue, if that ever happens. Unmetered is just a better term for it.
