You are correct.  If everyone used the limits that are given, the 
accounts would cost a lot more than they do.

It is a fairly well used business plan; most ISPs use it, Amazon uses 
it, security companies use it, Sears and Best Buy use it, etc.

All you can eat shipping for one low price with Amazon Prime?

15 Mbit/sec on iProvo?

The guys that knock on my door and tell me that I can have a security 
system FREE (with "about a dollar a day" monitoring service)?

And has anyone here ever bought the extended service plan on electronics?

You are also right that many companies advertise near infinite limits on 
things to get customers and then have other caveats that make the 
consumer think they can never get to those advertised levels.  Often it 
is the individual not reading the Terms of Service when they sign up.  
And sometimes it is the company blatantly not giving what they claim.

Bluehost does everything it can for the customers, and often goes out of 
it's way to help.  Sometimes the use that the customer wants is just 
beyond what can be given and still have the other customers function.

And just to keep things geeky and lighthearted, Mr. Spock once said "The 
needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few...or the one."
