Data transfer plans are easy to use and cost-effective. A data transfer plan immediately takes effect after you complete the payment. After a data transfer plan takes effect, it automatically offsets IPv4 data transfer fees that are incurred by certain instances until the data transfer plan is used up or expired. Applicable instances include Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instances, elastic IP addresses (EIPs), Classic Load Balancer (CLB) instances, and EIP bandwidth plans that are billed on a pay-by-data-transfer basis. Data transfer plans do not apply to IPv4 data transfer fees that are incurred by EIPs of BGP (Multi-ISP) Pro.
