Tencent Cloud provides multiple network billing methods. You can switch the billing method between Bill-by-bandwidth and Bill-by-traffic in the console. For each CVM instance, however, you can switch between both billing methods twice at most.
For more information on billing, see Public Network Billing Methods.
Tencent Cloud provides two types of network configurations: dedicated public network and shared public network. The shared public network service is billed by bandwidth. To activate this service, you need to submit a ticket. For more information on billing methods, see Billing of Shared Public Network. This document describes the billing methods of a single CVM instance. For more information, see Public Network Billing Methods.
This billing method supports adjustment (increase or decrease) of the network bandwidth at any time. If you have changed the network bandwidth more than once within an hour, you are billed based on the maximum bandwidth.
This billing method supports the adjustment (increase or decrease) of the bandwidth cap at any time, and the change takes effect immediately.
The Bill-by-traffic billing method is also applicable to pay-as-you-go CVM instances.
The bandwidth cap varies with the billing methods and CVM configurations. For more information, see Public Network Bandwidth Cap.
