    • For traffic costs, see Public Network Billing Methods.

    • For gateway costs, see the following table:

      Gateways Chinese Mainland Hong Kong (China) Silicon Valley, Frankfurt, Seoul, Mumbai, Virginia, Moscow, and Tokyo Toronto, Singapore, and Bangkok

      200Mbps/500Mbps/1000Mbps 0.46 USD/hr 0.62 USD/hr - -

    Assume a user purchases 50 Mbps VPN gateway in Beijing with the pay-as-you-go billing option and uses a total of 5 GB traffic between 07:00:00-07:59:59, then at 08:00:00, the user will be required to pay the following fees:

    • Traffic fee: the traffic price is 0.12 USD/GB in Beijing. Traffic fee = traffic price * used traffic = 0.12 USD/GB * 5 GB = 0.6 USD.
    • Gateway fee: the price of 50 Mbps VPN gateway in Beijing region is 0.078 USD/hr. Gateway fee = gateway price * duration = 0.078 USD/hr * 1 hour = 0.078 USD.
