Increasing bandwidth prices
its 10 bucks for 100 gigs of bandwidth
Scenario 1: Buy 1TB of "extras", $100 cost
Scenario 2: Consume 1TB of overage, $100 cost
Scenario 3: Add extra linode to account (adds 2TB to pool), never bother booting it, $20 cost
It's a bit silly that the best way to get more bandwidth is to just order a bunch of extra linodes that you never use. Linode is making a profit either way, but they would make a great deal MORE profit if the overage/exttra price was closer to the cost of just buying another linode.
