If you've come to this page, it's probably because you were wondering why we were hand-waving about the bandwidth limits for PythonAnywhere accounts. You're definitely right to wonder — "Low", "Medium" and "High" are pretty vague terms.
The thing is, PythonAnywhere is still a very new service. We're still trying to work out what we can put in free accounts and what we should charge for, how much we need to charge to break even, and all that stuff. And a certain amount of the infrastructure to support high-performance computing for science and finance is still in the labs, not yet ready for prime time. So a certain amount of hand-waving is impossible to avoid!
Anyway, obviously we can't leave it at that and charge you for something without at least vaguely telling you what it is, so the details of what we're promising to deliver are in the Terms and Conditions. For those who prefer a human-readable version of all that legalese, here's what we're trying to say:
Obviously we'll be offering new kinds of accounts as time goes by. As we promise on our front page, we'll soon be offering high-CPU-power accounts for scientific and financial number-crunching — but we're also considering higher-powered web hosting accounts, accounts with support for GPU computing, and lots of others. Perhaps we should also offer pay-as-you-go plans where you can pay for extra bandwidth and processor power based on how much you need to use. What do you think?
So, that's it. Is there anything we're missing? Are we getting anything wrong? Let us know, we're keen to make PythonAnywhere better in every way.
