AWS Free Tier Data Transfer Expansion – 100 GB From Regions and 1 TB From Amazon CloudFront Per Month

AWS Free Tier has been around since 2010 and allows you to use generous amounts of over 100 different AWS services. Some services offer free trials, others are free for the first 12 months after you sign up, and still others are always free, up to a maximum of favor. Our intention is to make it easy and cost effective for you to gain experience with a wide range of powerful services without having to pay any consumption taxes.

Free extension of level data transfer
Today, as part of our long tradition of AWS price reductions, I am pleased to share that we are expanding the Free Tier with additional data transfer as follows:

Data transfer from AWS regions to the Internet is now free for up to 100 GB of data per month (up from 1 GB per region). This includes Amazon EC2, Amazon S3, Elastic Load Balancing and so on. The extension does not apply to the AWS GovCloud or AWS China regions.

Data transfer from Amazon CloudFront is now free for up to 1 TB of data per month (up to 50 GB), and is no longer limited to the first 12 months after enrollment. We are also raising the number of free HTTP and HTTPS requests from 2,000,000 to 10,000,000 and removing the 12-month limit on the 2,000,000 free CloudFront Function calls per year. month. The extension does not apply to data transfer from CloudFront PoPs in China.

This change will take effect on December 1, 2021 and will take effect without any effort on your part. As a result of this change, millions of AWS customers worldwide will no longer see a charge for these two categories of data transfer on their monthly AWS bill. Customers who go beyond one or both of these allocations will also see a reduction in their total data transfer costs.

Your applications can run in all 21 AWS regions with a total of 69 accessibility zones (with more of both on the way) and can take advantage of the full range of CloudFront features (including SSL support and media streaming) and over 300 CloudFront PoPs, all connected via a dedicated network backbone. The network is designed with performance as a key driver and is constantly being expanded to meet our customers’ ever-growing needs. It is global, fully redundant and built of parallel 100 GbE metro fibers connected via trans-oceanic cables across the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans as well as the Mediterranean, Red Sea and South China Sea.
