    What is the Difference between Unlimited and Unmetered?

    I have seen many hosting providers offer unlimited bandwidth and hosting and many also offer unmetered bandwidth.

    I want to know what exactly is the difference between the two and which one is better?

    hate to say it but either way its still metered and monitored.

    In the TOS it says that if a "server" or website using too much data they have every right to shut the site down.

    But to answer your question. Bandwidth is the amount of data going in and out of the server("internet")

    So in reality unlimited and unmetered is the same. just worded differently.

    Unmetered shows a signal that the company allow you as much but when they think you are crossing the line then simply alert you.

    In Unlimited it is a signal that there is limitless bandwidth.

    In other words we can say that, “Unmetered bandwidth” refers to the speed of data-transfer, whereas on the other hand, “Unlimited bandwidth” ideally means that as far as the amount of data-transfer goes, you can download or upload as much data as you want in a given period of time.

    There is a very little difference between unmetered and unlimited.So, I would like to differ both of them is that unmetered bandwidth means the speed of data transfer and unlimited bandwidth means the amount of data transfer.
