Commonly asked questions


If I downgrade my account do I get to keep my current bandwidth?

If you downgrade within any of the pro plans you will keep your bandwidth, however if you downgrade from a Pro Plan to the Free starter plan you will loose it since there is no rollover associated with that Plan.

How do I downgrade my account?

You can downgrade your account before the 1st of the following month providing you give us a minimum of 3 days notice so you will not be charged for the same for the following month. However you must first delete enough videos in your account to meet the maximum storage for the chosen plan type and your bandwidth will be reset to the amount shown also.

Are there any overage fees?

Yes. Should you go over your bandwidth credit, then overage rates will apply. See our plans for details.
