We’ve reduced the prices for data transfer out of AWS by $0.02 (two cents) per GB across all regions. Effective February 1, 2010, pricing for data transferred out of Amazon EC2, Amazon S3, Amazon SimpleDB, Amazon SQS, Amazon RDS, and Amazon VPC will change as follows:

Level Old Price New Price
First 10 TB per month $0.17/GB $0.15/GB
Next 40 TB per month $0.13 $0.11
Next 100 TB per month $0.11 $0.09
Over 150 TB per month $0.10 $0.08

Pricing for data transferred out of Amazon CloudFront will change as follows (these are prices for the US region; prices in the other regions have also been reduced):

Level Old Price New Price
First 10 TB per month $0.17/GB $0.15/GB
Next 40 TB per month $0.12 $0.10
Next 100 TB per month $0.10 $0.08
Next 100 TB per month $0.09 $0.07
Next 250 TB per month $0.08 $0.06
Next 250 TB per month $0.07 $0.05
Next 250 TB per month $0.06 $0.04
Over 1000 TB per month $0.05 $0.03

The AWS Simple Monthly Calculator has been updated to reflect the changes.

We are constantly working to drive our costs down and become more operationally efficient. We then pass on those cost savings to our customers in the form of lower prices.
