Is bandwidth restricted by default?

Well, that. If I create a cheap ($5) droplet will it use maximum possible bandwidth or is it limited or do I have to buy something separately? Thanks.

Hi. Thanks for the answer but I meant bandwidth in terms of speed, not transfer volume. Can you shed some light?

Hi there @cristiandelafuente,

There is no need for adding any additional services manually.

Droplets include free outbound data transfer, starting at 1,000 GiB/month for the smallest plan. If the outbound transfer exceeds the amount included with your Droplets at end of the cycle, you will be charged $0.01 per excess gigabyte.

You can see your current usage via your DigitalOcean Control Panel then go to Billing and there you will be able to see your Droplet transfer data.

Hope that this helps. Regards, Bobby
