Aparently so. There are other companies in the US providing similar
services. I guess they rely on the fact that most users will never
really use so much space and bandwidth.
Then there is also the 'catchall' clause where you are only allowed to
use an hour (or so) CPU time a day. Your site is move to another server
when you go over the limit and will be closely monitored. If that
happens often you can/will be removed from their hosting.
Bottom line is: They can set such generous limits because there are only
very few applications that can really use 1.5 TB space and 15TB
bandwidth without crossing the daily CPU time limit. The very few that
do are a selling point to the majority that don't.
