Cloudflare is a founding member of the Bandwidth Alliance. The Bandwidth Alliance is a group of forward-thinking cloud and networking companies that are committed to discounting or waiving bandwidth/data transfer fees for mutual customers. This benefits all Cloudflare customers at no additional cost.
If you're a Cloudflare customer that is hosted with one of the cloud providers that's part of the Bandwidth Alliance, the discounted rate will be applied to data transferred between your host and Cloudflare's data centers. The discounted rate will be applied when the required technical and billing systems integration is ready. Some of those providers already have this enabled. Some are planning to go live over the next months.
