Hello, all

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.

You can check the full information on the Bandwidth billing here:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex

Currently, we recommend upgrading to a higher tier of transfer/larger Droplet if you expect to go over the traffic limit, but if you do breach the limit, you may want to reach out to contact@digitalocean.com

At this time, we are not billing for the additional traffic, but we do monitor for overages.
