    Realistic traffic?

    I notice 1and1 are offering 'unlimited traffic and a dedicated 100 Mbps on servers.

    This seems too good to be true. And more so as it's from their co.uk op - usually their .com op has better prices.

    Am I right in thinking that such a setup could realistically push 10-32 TB monthly traffic?

    Am I missing some catch?

    You can get unlimited traffic, however your server should be capable enough to handle that much traffic. I think this is the catch. Check it with 1and1 hosting.

    Yes, it's a matter of cpu, internal memory, hard drives etc. It's one reason they're having such an offer - it's unlikely you'll be able to use it to the full theoretical extent. The other is probably that the connection is contended, you share it with several other customers.

    Thanks. So the 100Mbps is just the data port connection, but not the outgoing 'pipeline'?
