On April 1st 2023 (4/1/2023), updated pricing will go into effect for some Compute services. This includes increasing the cost for most Shared and Dedicated CPU Compute Instance plans (excluding the $5/mo 1GB Shared plan), decreasing the cost of network transfer (egress) overage fees, and increasing the cost for additional IPv4 addresses. This page covers each pricing change so you know exactly what to expect.

To learn more about these changes, review the Akamai’s Cloud Computing Services: Pricing Update blog post.

Compute Instances

Beginning April 1st 2023, the price for most Shared CPU and Dedicated CPU Compute Instance plans will increase by 20%. This excludes the 1 GB Shared CPU (Nanode) plan, which will remain at its current $5/mo price. This change also does not affect High Memory and GPU plans. The tables below outline each plan along with the corresponding resources, the original price, and the new price.

Network Transfer (Egress) Overages

Each Compute Instance plan includes a certain allowance of outbound network transfer per month (ranging from 1 GB to 20 GB). The monthly network allowance of each instance active during a billing period (prorated) is then combined into a monthly transfer pool. Any additional transfer usage that exceeds this monthly pool is billed as a per GB overage charge. To learn more about how network transfer works (and how it is billed), see Network Transfer Usage and Costs.

Starting on April 1st 2023, the network transfer (egress) overage fees will be cut in half, from $0.01/GB (existing fee) to $0.005/GB (new fee). The table below details this change.

Outbound network transfer (Egress) Overage$0.01/GB$0.005/GB

Additional IPv4 Addresses

Each Compute Instance includes a free IPv4 address and IPv6 address. Additional IPv4 addresses can be purchased for a fee and added to an instance. Starting on April 1st 2023, the cost for each additional IP address will increase from $1/mo to $2/mo.
