Hetzner's 10G dedicated uplink bandwidth pricing makes no sense.
I'm currently looking at the Hetzner PX-line of dedicated server's.
The PX62 server comes with the following specs
Intel® Xeon® E-2176G Hexa-Core
64 GB DDR4 ECC RAM
2x 8TB Enterprise HDD or 2x 960GB Enterprise SSD.
1GBPS guaranteed bandwidth (330TB) per month
Price is €94.80 with €94.80 setup in Germany (FSN) (incl 20% VAT).
However if I add a 10GBPS dedicated uplink (incl. 10G NIC) to the server the total becomes €133.80 (incl 20% VAT) with the inclusive bandwidth reduced from 330TB used over a 1GBPS to 20TB over a 10GBPS port with a €1.20 charge (incl 20% VAT) for every extra TB used.
This means that the total price for 330TB over 1GBPS guaranteed bandwidth is €94.80 after setup (incl 20% VAT)
However if the 10GBPS dedicated uplink (incl. 10G NIC for €39 extra per month) is installed the remaining 310TB will be charged at €**372 **euro. meaning the total cost for the same server with the same amount of traffic will be €404.80 instead of €94.80.
@Hetzner_OL can you please justify why you charge 4 times the price for 330TB bandwidth over a 10GBPS port when the same 330TB bandwidth is guaranteed and included with your 1GBPS port for no additional charge.
I understand why you would charge additional cost for bandwidth over the 330TB included with a 1GPS port however making the customer pay an extra €372 for the same amount of bandwidth just makes no sense.
