ExpressRoute Pricing

ExpressRoute is a service that enables you to create private connections between Azure datacenters and infrastructure that’s on your premises or in a colocation environment. ExpressRoute connections do not go over the public Internet, and offer more reliability, faster speeds, lower latencies and higher security than typical connections over the Internet.

Metered Data plan

All inbound data transfer is free of charge, and all outbound data transfer is charged based on a pre-determined rate (listed below). Users are also charged a fixed monthly port fee (based on High Availability dual ports).

Port speed Price per month Price per month with Premium Add-on Inbound data transfer included Outbound data transfer included
50 Mbps $55 $130 Unlimited None
100 Mbps $100 $200 Unlimited None
200 Mbps $145 $295 Unlimited None
500 Mbps $290 $690 Unlimited None
1 Gbps $436 $1186 Unlimited None
2 Gbps $872 $2372 Unlimited None
5 Gbps $2180 $5180 Unlimited None
10 Gbps $5000 $8000 Unlimited None

Outbound data transfer is charged at a rate of $0.025 per GB for Zone 1, $0.05 per GB for Zone 2, and $0.14 per GB for Zone 3.

Once connected to an ExpressRoute location, users can connect to other regions in the same geo without the need for the premium add-on, and at no additional cost over existing plan charges. For example, in the US, customers can send or retrieve data to/from any Azure region in the US without the need to pay an additional fee on top of their existing plan charges. Similarly, once connected to an ExpressRoute location in Europe, customers can send or retrieve data to/from any Azure region in Europe without the need to pay an additional fee on top of their existing plan charges.

Note: Customers may incur additional charges by their service providers to enable connectivity to ExpressRoute.

ExpressRoute Premium Add-on

ExpressRoute Premium is an add-on over the ExpressRoute Unlimited Data Plan / Metered Data Plan charges. The ExpressRoute Premium add-on provides the following capabilities:

  • Increased route limits for public and private peering from 4,000 routes to 10,000 routes.
  • Global connectivity for services. An ExpressRoute circuit created in any region (excluding China and government cloud) will have access to resources across any other region in the world. For example, a virtual network created in West Europe can be accessed through an ExpressRoute circuit provisioned in Silicon Valley.
  • Increased number of VNet links per ExpressRoute circuit from 10 to a larger limit (depending on the bandwidth of the circuit).
Refer to the ExpressRoute Technical documentation page for more details.
