Modifying an EIP Bandwidth


No matter which billing mode is used, if your EIP is not added to a shared bandwidth, it uses a dedicated bandwidth.

This section describes how to increase or decrease a dedicated bandwidth.

When you change the bandwidth size, the bandwidth price and effective time depend on the billing mode, which applies to both dedicated and shared bandwidths. For details, see Table 1.

Decreasing bandwidths may cause packet loss.
