Cloud providers partner to reduce data transfer fees
The Bandwidth Alliance is a group of forward-thinking cloud and networking companies that are committed to discounting or waiving data transfer (also known as bandwidth) fees for shared customers.
Interested in using the Bandwidth Alliance?
The data transfer fees charged by many cloud providers can be an integral part of your cloud hosting bill. Since cloud providers use their own global telecommunication backbone or use transit service providers to carry traffic, they incur infrastructure costs, which they pass on to their customers as data transfer fees.
Our partners have agreed to pass on these cost savings to our joint customers by waiving or reducing data transfer charges.
To help you get a sense of the scale of your potential savings by moving to the Bandwidth Alliance, we have put together a calculator.
Fill in your details on storage and egress to figure out how much you could be saving.
This egress savings calculator is for informational purposes only. Prices are limited to the public egress transfer bandwidth fees as of March 6, 2020, and do not include taxes and any other fees such as storage fees. Egress transfer fee discount or waiver may require registration with the hosting provider and does not apply to data transfer originating from mainland China. The fees for the data transfer from your cloud provider to Cloudflare are determined and billed solely by your cloud provider. Cloudflare is not responsible for any fees your cloud provider charges you.
Google Cloud is not part of the Bandwidth Alliance. Reduced egress price for Google Cloud is through the CDN Interconnect program. Google Cloud price is based on intra-region CDN Interconnect traffic using egress rates published on https://cloud.google.com/interconnect/docs/how-to/cdn-interconnect.
Amazon S3 price is based on the price for the data transfer out from Amazon S3 to Internet as published on https://aws.amazon.com/s3/pricing.
Below are the partners who are committed to discounting their customers' data transfer fees. Google led the way with their CDN Interconnect program, which Cloudflare has been a part of since its launch in 2015.
