Dedicated Tunnel Bandwidth Resource Fee

  • Monthly 95th percentile billing:
    Monthly dedicated tunnel fee = valid day proportion * monthly 95th percentile bandwidth value * tiered unit price.
  • Definitions:
  • 5-minute bandwidth value
    The system counts the inbound and outbound bandwidth values on the devices every minute, takes the higher value, and calculates the average in the past five minutes once every five minutes, which is recorded as the 5-minute bandwidth value.
  • Valid day
    A day when there is one 5-minute bandwidth value greater than 3 Kbps is considered a valid day.
  • Valid day proportion
    Valid day proportion = valid days in the month / calendar days in the month.
  • Monthly 95th percentile bandwidth value
    In a calendar month, the 5-minute bandwidth values on all valid days are counted and sorted in ascending order, the highest 5% values are removed, and the remaining highest value is used as the monthly 95th percentile bandwidth value.
  • Tiered unit price
    Non-accumulative tiered pricing.
  • Billing example for a dedicated tunnel:
    There are 14 valid days of dedicated tunnel usage in January. As there are 24 * 60 / 5 = 288 sample points per day, the total number of sample points in the 14 days are 14 * 288 = 4,032. The bandwidth values of the 4,032 points are sorted in ascending order, the first 5% values are removed, and the bandwidth value of the 3,830th point (4032 * 0.95 = 3830.4) is used as the billable bandwidth value for the month, which is recorded as Max95. The fee for January is Max95 * 14/31 * tiered unit price.
  • Tiered unit price:
    Pay-as-you-go billing method is used in Mainland China at the prices as shown in the table below:
Tier (Mbps) Monthly fee (USD/Mbps)
[0, 10) 85
[10, 20) 63
[20, 50) 45
[50, 100) 34
[100, 200) 25
[200, 500) 18
[500, 1000) 14
[1000, 2000) 11
[2000, 1000000) 10
