What does the 999,999 GB* monthly bandwidth mean?

We have set the bandwidth limit for two of our web hosting service plans - E-Commerce Hosting (Web Mall) and Multi Domain Hosting (Multi Site) to 999,999 GB of monthly bandwidth. You have probably seen that most Shared Hosting providers offer "Unlimited Bandwidth". "Unlimited Bandwidth" is a data transfer offering, which is hard or even impossible to justify, because it does not exist.

We want to be honest with our customers and must say that we do not expect any of the customer of the Wab Mall and Multi Sit plans to use 999,999 GB of monthly bandwidth on a Shared Hosting plan. Your account can not handle the load.
