How is traffic calculated?
Last updated: 31 October 2023
All Jet-Stream Cloud packages include a large traffic bundle for free. Choose the package that suits your needs best. Contact us for expert advise on sizing and a quotation.
Bundled and extra traffic
If your service generates extra traffic beyond your bundle, this traffic is charged per GB afterwards. The price per GB depends on your volume and whether you use the volume or the premium CDN option.
Competitive traffic rates
Traffic rates can vary between €0,005 per GB for high volume traffic to €0,05 for low volume premium traffic to exotic regions. Jet-Stream is transparent in which rates you get and these are contractually signed, to prevent unpleasant surprises.
Multi CDN mix
With Basic and Pro accounts, Jet-Stream creates the mix of CDNs. With Enterprise and Broadcaster accounts you get to choose which CDNs are used in which region.
- Basic accounts are served from the high performance 8K Jet-Stream European CDN for extreme performance in the EU.
- Pro accounts are served from the Jet-Stream CDN plus one global volume or premium CDN for global coverage, scale, redundancy and performance in EU, North America, South America, Asia and Pacific.
- Enterprise accounts are served from the Jet-Stream CDN plus two global volume and/or premium CDNs for improved global coverage, scale, redundancy and performance in EU, North America, South America, Asia and Pacific.
- Broadcaster accounts are served from the Jet-Stream CDN plus three global volume and/or premium CDNs for ultimate global coverage, scale, redundancy and performance, even in remote regions such as China, Middle-East and Africa.
You are using the Pro account which includes 60000 GB traffic per year (5000 GB per month). In the past month you have used 7500 GB, which means 2500 GB extra. The contractual price for extra traffic was €0,02 per GB for premium CDN usage, so you are charged €0,02 * 2500 = €50 extra for that month. Traffic bundles are calculated per month. If you want annual flexible traffic volumes, please contact us.
You can override Jet-Stream’s multi-CDN load balancing system and steer traffic per individual stream, video and origin to specific CDNs. Jet-Stream uses a fair use policy on CDN switching, meaning that you won’t get instant charges if temporarily more expensive CDNs are being used. If more expensive CDNs are used beyond the FUP, Jet-Stream will charge you the higher CDN charge.
Bespoke CDN configurations
For large volumes, Jet-Stream helps you negotiate competitive wholesale rates with its CDN partners. Jet-Stream is neutral and independent and advise on the best CDNs for your use case, and considers geographies, performance, uptime, pricing, features, eco-footprint and data protection. Jet-Stream charges hours for consulting, negotiations, testing and implementation.
Bring your own CDN
For larger plans it is possible to bring in your own CDN contract. In that case, Jet-Stream will not charge for traffic, instead Jet-Stream will charge fees for multi-CDN load balancing, log processing and analytics. If your CDN is not integrated yet, Jet-Stream will charge one-time integration costs.
For larger plans, Jet-Stream can deploy dedicated, private edge servers, either in our facilities, or in third party on-premises facilities. This enables deep edge delivery inside telecom, mobile and enterprise networks. These edges can be mixed with CDNs, to design the most optimal delivery infrastructure for your use case.
