CloudFront's first 1TB of bandwidth is free

I didn’t realise that AWS CloudFront now gives customers the first 1TB of out-bound bandwidth for free each month. That’s kind of a big deal. I wonder what competitor motivated them to do that? Cloudflare perhaps? (Cloudflare’s free package was and continues to be an insanely good deal in comparison to AWS).

AWS’s high-priced bandwidth has always been one of its biggest downsides. So that initial 1TB now being free is very handy for people like me who use CloudFront for small-scale projects and personal blogs.
