Bandwith Usage and Overage Charges

July 16, 2014 9.1k views

I see on the pricing page that bandwidth is listed at $.02 per GB if you go over the allotted amount for your plan. But as far as I can tell there is no way to monitor how much bandwidth has been used.

Two questions:
I've seen some references on these forums that state that DO isn't charging for extra bandwidth until they have better monitoring in place, can someone please confirm that is still the case?

And does the bandwidth amount for each plan (1TB for $5/month plan for instance) include total of inbound and outbound traffic combined? Or is that 1TB in and 1TB out?

They currently are not charging for bandwidth.

If I recall its outbound traffic only.

What is the charge for outbound traffic?

It's still unlimited "as of today" I believe, FWIW...when they do end up charging I believe it's slated as $0.02 see also https://digitalocean.uservoice.com/forums/136585-digitalocean/suggestions/20080264-make-bandwidth-overage-costs-equal-to-the-original
