I was thinking "that's something they might be able to pull, with very cheap bandwidth (too lazy to do the math)". For instance , Stargate posted an offer like that on WHT a couple days ago.
However, they also offer 1 GB disk space....so... LOL

Because when you go in for those 1 cent frys, you are also going to buy a $1.50 coke and a $2.50 sandwich. There is really nothing else to buy after you have purchased your reseller account, maybe an upgrade, but I imagine those prices are about the same.
Exactly, someone they can get to sign up for the service, then terminate your account for excessive use after you cross a certain amount of transfer which won't be much. Then they walk away with your money.
You know I find it very hard to believe & so does everyone else I may add, that ever really good offer, is not lagit. God knows, that I could never use that much bandwidth. I may host a few "opne source" programs, but nothing like an iso, such as rat hat linux or anything.
Let's try this another way: Everyone knows McDonalds actually has enough fries to sell them for .01, especially considering that's only valid along with another purchase. What I can't understand is how anyone who's spent more than a few minutes looking into hosting wouldn't also know that GISol cannot in any way actually provide 150gb transfer for $7.95/mo (0.05 per gb) and stay in business. It is flat out impossible, since bandwidth cannot be purchased anywhere near that cheaply.
Sure, YOU won't use 150gb, but anyone else could host a download mirror to a game site (or linux isos) and use 150gb in a single day. You can rest assured that anyone who does this will be terminated with some outright lie about "using too many server resources".
