    Billing Sample

    Assume that you have purchased DDoS Edge Defender service and consumed 4 TB of traffic (1 TB consumed in SA and 3 TB consumed in AP3) in the current month, the billing formula is as follows:

    • Basic protection plan (prepaid): 2770 USD
    • User traffic (pay-as-you-go):
      • Traffic consumed in SA falls into the 0–2 TB tier, resulting in a charge of 128 USD (0.128 USD/GB * 1 TB).
      • Traffic consumed in AP3 falls into the 0–2 TB and 2–10 TB tiers, resulting in a charge of 355 USD (0.12 USD/GB * 2 TB + 0.115 USD/GB * 1 TB).
    • The total cost is summed by the fixed cost of basic protection plan plus the traffic usage cost, that is 3253 USD (2770 USD + 128 USD + 355 USD).
