Is bandwidth allowance pooled across all your droplets?

If I have 3 of the $5 droplets which each allow 1TB of bandwidth, can I split that 3TB up however I like? For example 2 of the servers hardly having any traffic, but the third one getting 2.5TB?

Or does it specifically mean only 1TB per server?

Yes, bandwidth allowance is pooled across all your Droplets!

From official documentation Bandwidth Billing for Droplets.

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.
