Incoming IPv4 traffic is free of charge. Why? First and foremost, we only want to calculate the resources you use. However, incoming traffic often also contains traffic that you don’t want to have. Then why should we charge it?
For outgoing traffic, the first 2TB per month and customer are guaranteed free. However, since outgoing traffic via our high-quality upstream providers is expensive, we would like to make it possible for us to charge 5 cents per GB for further traffic starting at 2TB per month and customer if consumption is particularly high.
Don’t worry about it. We will inform you before a calculation in any case. At gridscale there are no surprises.
