They're amortizing last-mile plant upgrade costs, backbone upgrade costs, etc. into a single number. Many data centers have overages of 10 cents per GB...and they don't have a last mile coax plant o keep up. Honestly, 20Â¢ per GB is entirely reasonable.
I transferred about 20 TB's last month. My connection does fluctuate, which I guess you could consider a throttle, although its more a matter of running out of capacity I think. Besides even when my connection slows down, its still faster than my old provider.
Way too much competition to go with a data center that has overages.
Very few people use OVH for anything other than seedboxes from what I've seen. It's also not in the US. Also, as you said, they'll run out of peak capacity at times.
