This topic describes how to resize a bandwidth plan for cross-region connections. After you modify the bandwidth value, it immediately takes effect.

Background information

  • You can only upgrade a bandwidth plan for cross-region connections. Downgrades are not supported.
  • If you want to resize both a basic bandwidth plan and a bandwidth plan for cross-region connections, take note of the following rules:
    • Upgrade: You must upgrade a bandwidth plan for cross-region connections before you upgrade a basic bandwidth plan.
    • Downgrade: To downgrade a basic bandwidth plan, submit a ticket.

    For more information about how to resize a basic bandwidth plan, see resize a basic bandwidth plan.
