Before reading this document, you need to learn about CVM's Overview of Billing Methods for Public Network.
Here we describe exclusive public network's billing methods. For shared network billing methods, see Billing of Shared Public Network.


The network fees billed by traffic depend only on the outbound traffic of a single CVM, regardless of the CVM billing method (prepaid or postpaid). You can set the maximum bandwidth for the CVM. Packet loss occurs when the instantaneous bandwidth exceeds this limit.

Bill-by-traffic is simple and pay-as-you-go. The network cost depends on the outbound traffic per unit time. This mode is suitable for customers with fluctuating network requirements to cut cost.

Billing standard

Traffic per unit prices vary across regions. See the below table:

Region Price
Mainland China, Hong Kong (China), Seoul 0.12 USD/GB
Singapore,Silicon Valley,Virginia,Toronto & Frankfurt 0.08 USD/GB
Bangkok & Mumbai 0.1 USD/GB
