We are retiring “Data Transfer” and transfer allowances on all of our paid Mail/DNS accounts, effective immediately.
The idea of having transfer allowance or transfer limits comes from our early days back when we were using T1 lines for internet access or had to pay usage-based fees to upstream providers.
Now we are a colocation data center where metered bandwidth is a thing of the past. Today’s internet backbone is based on fixed rate bandwidth. We have access to plenty of transit and peering connections, so the concept of limiting or billing for data transfer no longer makes sense.
