Info on bandwidth pricing with load balancers

Hello, I can see you price 0.02$ per additional GB of bandwidth for each droplet and no bandwidth charges for load balancing.

However, if I’m using a load balancer attached to 3 droplets, will I be charged for the bandwidth between the droplets and the load balancer?

Hi @gowthamgts12

As long as you are using the “Private Networking” feature - which is the local network in the data center - then you do not pay anything for traffic between the load balancer and the droplets.

But if your load balancer connects to your droplets public IP, then traffic is counted on each droplet.
