    Billing Overview

    Tencent Cloud provides high-quality multi-line BGP networks to ensure an optimal network experience.
    Tencent Cloud currently provides two billing plans: bill-by-traffic and bill-by-bandwidth.

    Note:

    • The public network fee is billed based on outbound bandwidth/traffic. The outbound bandwidth refers to the bandwidth from the CVM to the public network. For example, the user uses the client to download CVM instance resources.
    • To avoid unexpected costs due to traffic surges, you can set a bandwidth cap. Any traffic over the cap will be dropped and will not incur any costs.

    Billing Plans

    The following tables compare the payment methods, billing cycles, and use cases of the two different billing plans:

    • Calculating usage based on traffic (GB):

      Billing Plan Payment Method Billing Cycle Use Cases

    • Calculating usage based on bandwidth (Mbps):

    Billing Plan Payment Method Billing Cycle Use Cases

      The peak bandwidth is only regarded as the maximum peak bandwidth, and not as the fixed bandwidth. In case of resource contention, the peak bandwidth may be limited. The peak bandwidth is regarded as the fixed bandwidth. In case of resource contention, the peak bandwidth will be guaranteed and will not be limited.
