You mean buying bandwidth cap in Kbps or Mbps? Yeah it can be more cheaper than buying data transfer but it's not so scaleable.Originally posted by Archbob
The concept won't work for large sites because bandwidth buying en masse is much cheaper than buying by the Gig. Like with some companies such as tera-byte, you get 20GB for 9.25/month. So for large bandwidth sites, this tactic won't work well.
Yeah but it's not all hosts. So I think that "pay what use use" is good solution for any sites, small or very big....Originally posted by Myacen Network
Not really some hosts charge very little for overusage. If a site uses 50gig a month, and you buy it in bulk the host can usually offer a heavily discounted rate as we would.

Yes, but by that time the site is big enough such that the cashflow is enough to buy dedicated servers-servers in which THEY have the power to change whatever they want to as by their preferences, and it will not affect other users on the system...because they are the only ones on it! If you offered dedicated servers, then this idea would work very well.
