Do we get billed for extra bandwidth usage? And will it be possible to monitor bandwidth usage?

hello guys,

i did not want to start a new post for the same question.
so how it is now? i am asking because in germany kind of all the hosters have even for the lowest solutions a “flatrate”. but yes: they want more money than DO ^^

Is DO billing for bandwith now or are there plans? I would like to know before moving to you.

Thanks in advance.

Your Digital Ocean package has a specific amount of bandwidth, for example 1 TB for $5. Officially overage is billed at: $0.02 per gigabyte. You can install your own bandwidth monitor such as vnstat on your droplet.

I am here, you will start billing for bandwidth. I watched you increase my CPU because I am sending / referring users to you. I typically see a few million a month “uniques” I refer to. I do not want your company to get greedy. That is my initial impression. I just started unloading on your cloud, I have 13 servers I am moving. I swear to you I screenshot it. I do not mind helping you, you have a good service. I have moved Petabytes in a month, opensource so please do not question what I do, demand is there. I can help or hinder you.

I’m not trying to say this to be a prick. If I pay for a $10 account treat it as such, do not adjust my account, let my users adjust that for you.


Can we track somehow on the DO interface that how much bandwith we used? I not mean the / day or / hour graphs, I mean a summary of it for the current billing cycle.
