Data Transfers

There are now new regions specific to Verizon which include new rates for data transferred. These rates for the most part, are the same as transfers to the internet and thus facilitated no change other than adding the new regions. The fact the Verizon charges are listed in a separate section (even though they are the same price) leads us to think they may update these to be different in the future.

  • US East (Verizon) - Atlanta
  • US East (Verizon) - Boston
  • US East (Verizon) - New York
  • US East (Verizon) - Washington DC
  • US West (Verizon) - San Francisco Bay Area
  • Added Asia Pacific (Osaka-Local) region
  • Updated pricing in Asia Pacific (Sydney), Africa (Cape Town), Middle East (Bahrain), South America (Sao Paulo)
  • Added EU (Milan) region
