Changes to Network Egress Billing for Self-hosted Runners

Starting October 31, 2022, regardless of where a self-hosted runner is deployed, network egress incurred from restoring a Workspace or Cache to a self-hosted runner will be billable.

Previously, self-hosted runners deployed in AWS us-east-1 were exempt from all Network Egress billing.

One way to optimize usage is to use a local caching strategy with your self-hosted runner instead of using the built-in Caching/Workspace functionality.
