Thread: No- Unlimiband People
02-07-2003, 06:07 AM #1Felix 2Guest
I see some hosts running those "no-unlimiband" or whatever that silly unlimited bandwidth organization is banner on their site and I just have one question....
WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
Diluting your own branding and sales message by advertising that you are a member of some cheesy club that hates and does not condone those that advertise "unlimited" or "unmetered" bandwidth.
Seriously - do you see restaurants diluting their marketing efforts by advertising for some "No All you can eats!" or "No unlimited Free Refills" ad? And you - the person looking for a place to eat - are you really going to think more of this restaurant because they are part of this association?
For the tiny tiny tiny percentage of consumers that actually give a crud about your cause - is it really worth distracting them at all from the positive aspects of your business?
Or do you feel that you have a competitive advantage because you are a member of this club and should be advertising it?

There's no club. It's just a matter of informing consumers about the myth of unlimited bandwidth.
Those hosts aren't advertising their membership in a club, there is no club in fact, they're simply showing their support for unlimband.com and the idea of "anti-unlimited bandwidth", because there's, well, no such thing.

There is indeed no such thing as unlimited bandwidth but there is such thing known as unmetered bandwidth. Notice nowadays most companies put unmetered instead of unlimimted.

basically they list UNLIMITED. hehe but once you use to much of what they believe is unlimited, they either 1. suspend your account, 2. delete it =).

lol, well it all depends on how much you pay them monthly.
If you pay like 10 dollars a month and you use up about 50gb of transfer, they will start thinking about cancelling your account.

The fact that web hosting companies promise you unlimited shows that there is something wrong, that is IMO, because i never believed in unlimited.
