Hi, if I have several droplets will each of them have a 2gbps network bandwidth throughput?
I have to serve lots of files and require more than 2gbps throughput so if I have several servers will each of them have 2gbps?

Hi @sanchezand,

Droplets include free outbound data transfer, starting at 1,000 GiB/month for the smallest plan. Excess data transfer is billed at $0.01/GiB. For example, the cost of 1,000 GiB of overage is $10. Inbound bandwidth to Droplets is always free.

Transfer allowance is pooled cumulatively at the account level, not individually at the Droplet level. For example, if you run two Droplets for a full month, each with 1,000 GiB/month allowance, you accrue a 2,000 GiB allowance. Let’s say you transfer 1,500 GiB of data with the first Droplet, which is over its individual limit, and 100 GiB of data with the second Droplet, you would still be under the total limit of 2000 GiB by 400 GiB and would not be charged any overage fees.

I’ll recommend going over the bandwidth documentation, it should provide any further answers to questions you might have.
