    This sample only calculates the network cost. CVM and other device fees will be settled separately.

    Adjusting the bandwidth

    Upgrading bandwidth for Monthly bandwidth subscription

    Assume you purchased the monthly subscription bandwidth of 2 Mbps for one CVM instance in Beijing region on November 1, 2018. You upgraded the bandwidth from 2 Mbps to 5 Mbps between November 20 and 29, 2018 for a total of 10 days.
    The payable bandwidth fee for the original monthly bandwidth subscription in November will be: bandwidth * unit price = 2Mbps * 2.86 USD/Mbps = 5.72 USD
    Additional fees after upgrading the bandwidth will be: bandwidth difference before and after the upgrade * number of days with upgraded bandwidth/billable days in the month (sum of days in multiple months) = (3.57 USD/Mbps * 3 Mbps + 2.86 USD/Mbps * 2Mbps - 2.86 USD/Mbps * 2Mbps) * 10 days/30 days = 3.57 USD

    Upgrading or downgrading bandwidth for bill-by-traffic

    You can adjust the bandwidth cap for bill-by-traffic CVM instances at no additional cost whenever you need. The public network is billed on the actual traffic.
