    As with any specific technical question, I have no high expectations to get an answer on this forum. But whatever, let me try :)

    Currently, I use dropbox to globally serve downloads of two types:
    1) around 50 files of ~50mb in size, a monthly amount of downloads is several thousand in total.
    2) around 15 files of ~15mb in size, a monthly amount of downloads is several thousand in total.

    As you can see, the traffic volume is not terribly high.

    I use Dropbox for serving those downloads, which costs 10 eur /month. The problem is Dropbox is blocked in China. Google Drive and OneDrive are blocked as well, moreover Google Drive doesn't support external downloads of this type anymore and OneDrive makes users jump through additional hoops in such cases.

    Has anybody here had an experience with file delivery CDNs? How much would 1TB of traffic cost? Can the file deployment to a CDN be automated? What are the best solutions that are not blocked anywhere? Is Amazon CDN good for this?

    Appreciate any answers from people with an actual experience.
