Starting today, a few of you may start to see a new post on your invoices: https://dash.99stack.com/billing/invoices labeled "bandwidth". The reason for this is an update aiming to make bandwidth billing more flexible and to provide a better overview.
Starting today, bandwidth overage will cost no more than $0.01/GB in every region.
What is "bandwidth overage"
Bandwidth overage is any extra bandwidth used by a server instance, after the allocated bandwidth has been used up. The allocated bandwidth can e found in every plans specification, and typically range between 1 TB/mo up to 40TB/mo, on the first every month this pool resets. As of now, only 0.1% of our entire customer base uses more bandwidth than allocated.
What was the price before
Before the change, prices in Europe and North America where $0.02/GB, Asia $0.05/GB and the rest of the world $0.10/GB, this was drawn directly from the balance and didn't always show up clearly on the invoice which has caused some confusing over time. This is something we could have handled much better.
What about private networking
Private networking are being replaced by VPC's for improved isolation and safety of your server instances. As usual, network traffic transferred between instances on the same VPC is always free and unlimited.
On the public interfaces, we charge only for outbound traffic. All inbound traffic to your server instance is free of charge.
