If bandwidth was at the core of my business model, I would certainly want to pay for it separately to avoid possible interruptions. In case of OVH, I assume, that's what "Bandwidth upgrade"[1] with a "limit of 20 Gbps per customer, and per datacentre" is designed for. It's not unreasonable to consider "spinning up to 10 cheapest cloud instances to avoid bandwidth limits" as a service abuse.
