Interesting developments from Google Cloud who have new introduced new network tiers pairing traffic's source and destination geographic locations for Google Cloud Premium Tier or Standard Tier networking prices which are based on where the source traffic comes from. Google Cloud Premium Tier uses Google Cloud's network for delivering outbound traffic while Standard Tier uses public internet. https://cloudplatform.googleblog.co...ervice-Tiers-your-cloud-network-your-way.html https://cloud.google.com/network-tiers/pricing Interest changing compared to old pricing https://cloud.google.com/compute/pricing#internet_egress So 1TB outbound to Australia previously would of cost US$190/TB would now cost US$120/TB for Google Cloud Standard Tier pricing. For Google Cloud Premium Tier it would also now depend on the source + destination paired pricing. However, intercontinental to Oceania outbound is the old US$190/TB pricing and outbound traffic within same Oceania region would be US$120/TB. So not much change. However, North America and Europe effectively have up to between 24-33% lower pricing for outbound traffic on Google Cloud Standard Tier now. Google Cloud Standard Tier for North American outbound traffic at US$85/TB is conveniently slightly cheaper than Amazon AWS's North American outbound traffic pricing at US$90/TB. However, outbound to China seems to be Premium Tier only and is charged at US$230/TB and doesn't seem to be available on Standard Tier. Still very expensive for the typical folks who use Centmin Mod LEMP stack though considering some dedicated servers themselves cost like that US$90/month and have up to 10-20TB outbound bandwidth included !
