Suppose you expected to resell some accounts in the 20/30/40GB/month range where you expect all your accounts to actually USE 80% or so of that bandwidth.
What provider would you go with? Who wouldn't play games with your bandwidth and would be able to deliver it with reasonable speed and reliability?
What would you expect to pay per plan for, say, 30 or 40GB?

Actually, being a host myself, Not a lot of clients use up anywhere near 80% of their bandwidth.
Although a smart host always has a back-up line in case they do or makes sure they have enough transfer. =)

Most users who do not have message boards or members type of site, will not use barely any of their bandwidth. Like northwind said, good host will have a backup line. They should also be monitoring the bandwidth througout the month so they should be buying more bandwidth before they run out.
Its hard to say who wouldnt play games with your bandwidth. Over the years I've noticed that good host will start to oversell their servers. I've also seen host that used to oversell stop. This is probally why many people move host more often than they'd like.

Overselling in general is pretty bad but if the machine can handle it and the host has an idea of what to do, there is no harm.
