New CloudFront Pricing Tiers for our High Volume Users
On February 1st, additional pricing tiers for high volume users of Amazon CloudFront go in to effect. We’ve been working to reduce our costs and to pass our savings along to you, our customers. If you are in the top bandwidth tier you can deliver content to customers in the United States and Europe for just $.050 per GB (one US Nickel).
The existing tiers apply at the 10 TB, 50 TB, and 150 TB transfer levels. We’ve added new levels and corresponding price breaks at 250 TB, 500 TB, 750 TB, and 1 PB. You can visit the CloudFront home page to see all of the pricing tiers.
I would also like to call your attention to a number of useful CloudFront resources:

- My recent CloudFront Management Tool Roundup contains information about 7 management tools and sites that will help you to get going with CloudFront.
