Hello, new DO user here and very impressed so far.
I wanted a bit of clarification on what network speed my Droplets should be getting.
I’m using Basic Premium AMD droplets which as I understand are not CPU-optimised, they’re just newer-class CPUs.
This doc page says that all droplets are limited to 2Gbps maximum but CPU-optimised droplets with premium CPUs get 10Gbps.
Yet one of my droplets is downloading a 1GB file in 1 second, average 850-900MB/s which translates to around 7Gbps.
I tested on a VM I have with another provider who list their speed as 400Mbps. The same 1GB file downloads at 47-48MB/s which calculates to around 385Mbps, so I’m confident my calculations are correct.
So my question really is, is my Basic Premium droplet CPU-optimised and getting 10Gbps, or am I getting something I shouldn’t be?
