Is this no charge for bandwidth overage still in effect? Did I miss any announcements?

@wiak is correct. At this time we are not yet charging for bandwidth overage. This is planned to change in the future but not without a notification to customers first. Currently there are no charges or other restrictions for going over your bandwidth limit. Users who are using a lot of bandwidth overall however may be reached out to to ensure other users sharing the same hypervisor do not see any degradation in service. The rule of thumb is to avoid anything which uses over 300mbps on a constant basis.

nothing currently, they dont even count the first 1TB
