AWS Data Transfer Price Reduction
I am happy to announce that we are reducing the rates for several types of AWS data transfers, effective December 1, 2014, as follows:
- Outbound Data Transfer – Pricing for data transfer from AWS to the Internet is now 6% to 43% lower, depending on the Region and the amount of data transferred per month.
- Data Transfer to CloudFront – Data transfer from AWS to Amazon CloudFront is now free of charge.
- Data Transfer from CloudFront – Pricing for data transfer out of CloudFront edge locations in the United States, Europe, Japan and Australia is now 4% to 29% lower, depending on the edge location and usage tier.
|Price Tier||US Standard,
US West (Oregon) &
US West (Northern California)
|Asia Pacific (Singapore)||Asia Pacific (Tokyo)||Asia Pacific (Sydney)|
|First 10 TB/month||-25%||-25%||-37%||-30%||-26%|
|Next 40 TB/month||-6%||-6%||-43%||-15%||-21%|
