A basic bandwidth plan provides bandwidth resources for data transmission over the global network and the internal network of Alibaba Cloud. However, a basic bandwidth plan cannot be used for content delivery acceleration between mainland China and areas outside mainland China through leased lines. A basic bandwidth plan is required when you want to accelerate the network traffic transmission within mainland China, or between mainland China and areas outside mainland China.

Bandwidth types

Basic bandwidth plans support three types of bandwidth: basic acceleration bandwidth, enhanced acceleration bandwidth, and premium acceleration bandwidth. The acceleration type, acceleration backend service, and acceleration scope of a basic bandwidth plan vary based on the bandwidth type, as shown in the following table.
Bandwidth type Acceleration type Acceleration backend service Acceleration scope
Basic acceleration bandwidth Applications that are deployed on Alibaba Cloud Alibaba Cloud Elastic IP address By default, network connections within mainland China are accelerated. If you also purchase a cross-border bandwidth plan, network connections between mainland China and areas outside mainland China are also accelerated.
Enhanced acceleration bandwidth
  • Applications that are deployed on Alibaba Cloud
  • Applications that are not deployed on Alibaba Cloud
  • Alibaba Cloud Elastic IP address
  • Custom IP address
  • Custom domain name
By default, network connections within mainland China are accelerated. If you also purchase a cross-border bandwidth plan, network connections between mainland China and areas outside mainland China are also accelerated.
Premium acceleration bandwidth
  • Applications that are deployed on Alibaba Cloud
  • Applications that are not deployed on Alibaba Cloud
  • Alibaba Cloud Elastic IP address
  • Custom IP address
  • Custom domain name
By default, network connections are accelerated on a global scale. Network traffic transmitted from mainland China to areas outside mainland China is directed to the Hong Kong (China) region and then forwarded to the global network. If you also purchase a cross-border bandwidth plan, the acceleration of network connections between mainland China and areas outside mainland China is reinforced.
