Bandwidth in & out of network

  • Posted April 29, 2014

HI Folks, I am considering a DigitalOcean account to host my community’s social network. My question is this: I am also looking at Linode. Linode lists similar specs to DO, but they also quote the bandwidth in & out of their network. What is the bandwidth in & out of DO’s network for the different tiers of inexpensive packages (< $50 / month) ?

Thanks, CHris

@chris: Correct, bandwidth is not throttled.

In testing I got up to ~350Mb/s The network is very nice, and I cant imagine any legal reason to need a better network unless there the amount to bandwidth is to small for your network. There is also free transfer between droplets in the same data centre. (I was using the 5$ plan)

Does that mean the bandwidth out of the network is not throttled outbound, or throttled for lower end plans? <br>

The droplets run on shared full-duplex 1 Gbit/s port per hypervisor.
