What is bandwidth

I’m trying to understand what bandwidth actually is. I can’t find a forum post or doc from Netlify on what bandwidth is, how it’s calculated, etc. I have a few small static sites deployed and I’m using over 100gb of bandwidth. I don’t understand how that is possible.

Hi @zhitch

This post explains more about bandwidth What does actually count in bandwidth? - #2 by luke as well as Billing → Bandwidth usage documentation which says:

Metered usage consists of all outgoing data traffic on your team’s sites, including:

  • pages, files, assets, and other responses served to site visitors on production sites, branch deploys, or Deploy Previews.
  • outgoing data sent by your sites in proxied API requests, including requests to Netlify Functions.
