9 TB unexpected increase in bandwidth usage/unapproved billing to account

Netlify site name: thecreatorclash.com

Over the past 3 days, my bandwidth has skyrocketed from under 100 GB, to 9.7 TB and I have no idea why. I since have optimized my images but there is no feasible reason why I should have consumed this much bandwidth at least from my perspective.

Why is my bandwidth being absolutely crushed?

Thank you!!

I was contacted by Netlify and this issue was my own silly doing! Asset optimization is important my friends!!! I had one .wav file around 7mb, and the site was almost hit 500 thousand times so voila, thats where the bandwidth and charges are coming from!

Netlify helped me out quickly and promptly and all is well now! Sorry for cluttering the forum!


Hey there, @Braedencraig :wave:

Thanks so much for coming back and sharing your solution! I am glad everything is working for you now, and that the root cause was discovered.

Happy building :rocket:
