How much can I save with 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.
