Billing Details

Billing Rule

Billing Period


Billing item: peak bandwidth

Payment: post payment

Billing method: You are billed by average daily peak bandwidth at the contract price.

Conversion rule: 1 Mbit/s = 1000 kbit/s

You are billed on a monthly basis. The usage for each month will be billed in the following month.

At the end of each calendar month, the system calculates the average of peak bandwidth of valid days in this month. The average value is the billable bandwidth of the month and the bill is generated based on the contract price.

Valid day: Any day when traffic is consumed is considered a valid day.

Measurement point: The bandwidth used is sampled every 5 minutes. There are 288 data samples per day.


Company D pays for CDN based on the average daily peak bandwidth. The billing option took effect on December 15, 2020, and the contract price is M/Mbit/s per month.

Suppose there are X days in December counted as valid days, and the peak bandwidth of valid days are recorded as Max_1, Max_2, ..., Max_X. Then the average peak bandwidth is Average (Max_1, Max_2, ..., Max_X). Therefore, the billable amount of the company in December is:

Average (Max_1, Max_2, ..., Max_X) x M x (X/Total days in December)

Bill Run Time

The system generates a bill at about 20:00:00 (GMT+08:00) on the first day of the next month for fee deduction. The actual bill generation time may vary.
