Bandwidth is a measurement of the volume of data that a network or server receives/ transmits over a given amount of time. When you watch a one hour video, it takes around 500 MB of bandwidth in SD and 2 GB in HD mode, please check our help article on encoding and resolution for more details. You can calculate bandwidth based on this. For example, if 2000 people watch one hour SD video, it will consume 1000 GB = 1 TB and so on.
We have different free usage limits for different plans. After you exceed the free bandwidth limit(According to your plan), we will charge for any extra bandwidth used by you. For example, if you have Muvi Standard plan, then after 1 TB free bandwidth limit you will be charged for any extra bandwidth used by you. Unlike other compnaies in the market, we don't offer unlimited bandwidth for free. We let you know the cost upfront so that you know the total cost and can plan your strategy accordingly. Whereas few companies in the market offer unlimited bandwidth but with a clause in their terms mentioning the upper limit which may surprise you at the end.
