This topic describes the billing method of network connections. Network connections are charged based on the regions of the connected networks. Connections between two networks in the same region are free of charge and do not require any bandwidth package. However, you must purchase a bandwidth package for connections in different regions.

Billing method of bandwidth packages

Bandwidth packages are required for connections in different regions. Each bandwidth package is billed based on the bandwidth, and prices for different areas and bandwidth values are different.

  • Billing item: Bandwidth fee. The minimum bandwidth is 2 Mbit/s.
  • Billing method: Subscription.

    Subscription bandwidth packages cannot be deleted and will be automatically released after expiration.

  • Billing cycle: 30 days (one month).

Types of bandwidth packages

After a bandwidth package is purchased, the areas to be connected must be specified. Note that each area contains one or more regions. Bandwidth packages are divided into the following two types based on the connected areas. The fees for different types of bandwidth packages vary. Bandwidth packages are charged at different prices if they belong to the same type but have different connected areas.

The relationship between different types of bandwidth packages and connected areas is as follows:
