@SrikrishnaR-4608 Thank you for your query. I might need some additional information from your end which will enable me to help you out better.

Can you help me understand what exactly is your use case scenario like when you say you need to download huge files how are you planning to do that? When you say that you want to understand the bandwidth cost what exactly is it pointing to?

Once I do have a clear idea about your ask I can help you out better.

Thanks

Hi @prmanhas-MSFT

Just a quick query: Will I incur changes for downloading files from internet, e.g. say Installing MS SQL Express on VM requires about 6GB of downloads. Will this incur charges?
