AWS Announces New Data Transfer Pricing

Posted on: Jun 30, 2011

We're pleased to announce that we're lowering our pricing for AWS data transfer, effective July 1, 2011. We've often told you that one of our goals is to drive down costs continuously and to pass those savings on. We've reduced prices on over a dozen occasions over the last four years. We’re happy to be able to once again pass along savings to you. We will no longer charge a separate fee for internet data transfer in. For internet data transfer out, we’ve added three new tiers -- at 1 PB, 5 PB and greater than 5 PB -- for our high volume users. Finally, in the US and Europe, we’ve reduced price for internet data transfer out at every existing usage tier of usage.

We’re also pleased to announce that for our Content Delivery Network, Amazon CloudFront, we’re also lowering prices effective July 1, 2011. We’ve added new usage tiers in every region, and in the US and Europe we’ve reduced data transfer pricing in every existing tier.
