Internet fee

After you create an NAT Gateway, you need to associate one or more EIPs with the NAT Gateway so that the NAT Gateway can access the Internet. After the association, an Internet fee is incurred due to traffic being sent over the Internet. The Internet fee is billed to the associated EIP, instead of the NAT Gateway.
Note If you purchased a shared bandwidth package for your account before January 26, 2018, you can still use the public IP address of the bandwidth package. In this case, the Internet fee is billed to the bandwidth package. For more information, see Billing of NAT bandwidth package.
