Deploy now → bandwidth overage is now $0.01 per GB

Bandwidth overage is now $0.01 per GB

September 20, 2022

While egress bandwidth fees are a very profitable source of revenue for public cloud providers, it ultimately hurts everyone.

They not only increase the complexity of running digital infrastructure by having CloudOps teams go out of their way to save costs but are slowing down the migration to the cloud by breaking the promise of cost reduction.

It is no surprise that we have always strived to make bandwidth management simpler and cheaper for our customers. Every server comes with 20 TB of free egress bandwidth, we automatically pool bandwidth for your servers and offer bandwidth packages at rates as low as $0.00064 per GB.

Even with all of these benefits, you could go over your quota at some point.

To reduce operational complexity and surprise charges, and because our network has grown to a point where we can pass these savings on to our customers, we are reducing overage egress fees by 80%. Each GB over your quota will now cost just $0.01, down from $0.05.
