Load Balancing – Why so expensive?

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

From my understanding, the Load Balancer simply forward the request coming in from Internet to the Web Server.

A Capability that even a simple VPS could do. And since these request are tiny, handling many of these requires very little bandwidth.

So why do RackSpace, Linode, and even OVH’s Load Balancing solution much more expensive?
