    Bandwidth and Host Review inquiry
    I have currently been reviewing ABW's archives on user opinions on hosting services and plans.

    One company was mentioned that is currently advertising "unlimited data transfer".

    Well that perked my ears up but I want to ask a question at this juncture:

    ?-Is data transfer the same as "bandwidth"?
    I've read many posts from forum members saying how they had to pay extra for bandwidth because they went over a particular month.

    ?-If this is the case can a company realistically give bandwidth away without there being some kind of gimmick?

    Some forum members seem to like this company but since I'm new I don't know how to determine if this is good or not.

    I have not posted the company's name on this post so as not to breach the TOS but any input regarding bandwidth and this pricing structure would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Mykl

    Mykl, yes bandwidth and data transfer are the same. How can a company give that away? Because the average user will never need that. The power user will need a higher level of service which they are willing to pay for.
