Often times, the limit is equal to the maximum that the connection could possibly sustain over that time, and is only provided for informational purposes.

and more thing, this vps node is going to be our backup MX (so smtp(+tls) protocol is a must)

Those all sounds like very reasonable requirements that many hosts can support. What is your budget?

$50/month - yearly billing cycle

IMO, quota based bandwidth is a evil business, customer has the right to have a fixed services (no overcharges bandwidth usage)

You should be able to find this. I know of one or two providers that match both the budget and specs.

one is wdservers.com, I can't mention the other due to forum rules regarding who you're allowed to promote. Wdservers website doesn't necessarily list the prices I'm talking about, but the owner will be able to do it for you.

the rapidxen 2mbps 95% limit is only there to discourage people doing bittorrent and selling a gazillion VPNs on a $7/mo VPS where they make ridiculous profit and I don't.

as far as legitimate traffic goes, we generally do not care about bandwidth utilization - the 2mbps 95% sets off a warning resulting in us auditing your netflow statistics to see if you're doing torrents/vpn without paying a fair share for that privilege or something that is an outright TOS violation (spamming, etcetera).

there are quite a few customers doing far more than 2mbps 95% and i simply don't care because they're not running a seedbox or selling 9001 $5/mo VPNs, e.g. they are just honest people doing honest things.

i think generally speaking, most people understand my policy on this, so i must wonder what precisely you mean by "business ethics?"
