We are introducing new pricing for Premium and Standard Tiers. This pricing takes effect as follows:
- New Standard Tier pricing takes effect at Beta.
- New Premium Tier pricing takes effect in the third quarter of 2019. Until then, existing Internet egress pricing applies to Premium Tier.
Network service tiers geolocations
Network Service Tiers pricing is applicable to outbound traffic from GCP to the Internet.
We will change our current destination-based pricing for Premium Tier to be based on both source and destination of traffic since the cost of network traffic varies with the distance your traffic travels over Google’s network. In contrast, Standard Tier traffic will be source-based since it does not travel much over Google’s network.
Network Service Tiers categorizes all countries and continents into the following geolocations:
- North America (NA)
- South America (SA)
- Europe (EU)
- Middle East/Africa
- Asia (excludes China)
- Oceania (includes Australia and New Zealand)
- Any: refers to any geolocation
- Intercontinental: refers to traffic between two of the following: NA, EU, SA, Asia, Oceania, Middle East/Africa
Usage Tiers will be updated as shown below:
Premium tier pricing
Egress pricing is per GB delivered. Pricing will be based on both source and destination geolocation of traffic, as opposed to the current system of using only the destination.
Always Free Usage Limits apply to Premium Tier.
Ingress pricing is still free.

Standard tier pricing
Egress pricing is per GB delivered. Pricing is based on source geolocation of traffic. Ingress pricing is still free. Always Free Usage Limits do not apply to Standard Tier.
Standard tier pricing takes effect at Beta, except for non-load-balanced traffic, which will be charged at premium rates until General Availability.

|From NA, EU||$0.085||$0.065||$0.045|
|From Oceania, SA||$0.12||$0.085||$0.08|
Contact sales beyond 500 TB once Network Service Tiers is available in General Availability.
Using the standard or premium tier does not affect the price of IP addresses, instances, or forwarding rules. See the Compute Engine pricing page for the prices for these resources.
