Data transfer plans are easy to use and charged at affordable prices. A data transfer plan immediately takes effect upon purchase. It is used to deduct IPv4 data usage that is generated by certain instances until the data transfer plan is consumed or expired. Applicable instances are Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instances, EIP, Server Load Balancer (SLB) instances, and EIP bandwidth plans that are billed on a pay-by-traffic basis. Data transfer plans are not applicable to IPv4 data usage generated by Elastic IP addresses of BGP (Multi-ISP)_Pro.
