We are excited to announce that effective December 1st, we have reduced the price for three types of AWS data transfer.

We have lowered prices for data transferred out to the Internet in the US East (Virginia), US West (Oregon), US West (N. California), EU (Ireland), EU (Frankfurt), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), and Asia Pacific (Sydney) regions. The new prices are between 6% and 43% lower than previous prices depending on region and usage tier. We are also reducing prices for data transferred out of CloudFront for edge locations in the United States, Europe, Hong Kong, Philippines, S. Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Japan, and Australia. The new CloudFront prices are between 4% and 29% lower than previous prices depending on the edge location and usage tier. Data transferred from AWS regions to Amazon CloudFront is now free of charge, allowing you to move data from Amazon S3, Amazon EC2, and Elastic Load Balancing to any CloudFront edge location worldwide without being charged any data transfer fees.

You don’t need to do anything to take advantage of these new prices. These new rates will be automatically reflected in your bill. To learn more, read the blog.
