Upcoming billing changes to Azure Bandwidth

Published date: 01 August, 2020

On a rolling basis throughout September 2020, we’ll move Bandwidth to a source–destination billing model. Additionally, metering will be divided into inter-region meter IDs. As a result, your Bandwidth charges for inter-region data transfers will either remain the same or decrease. Your first 5 GB of outbound data transfers will remain free of charge and the current data volume tiers will be replaced by one flat price.

There will be no change to internet egress pricing
