Hi @raymundo

No, the transfer between your Droplet and Block Storage is free of charge.

Hi @hansen

But the outbound transfer? Block Storage to Droplet free of charge but user request via droplet an mp3 from Block Storage? Aply the standard fee of my plan?

  • Yes, if you have a $5 droplet, you get 1TB internet-transfer with that. Anything that happens on the local network (Block Storage and “Private Networking”) is free of charge.
    So it’s actually the Droplet that reads the data (from Block Storage) and serves it to the visitor. That’s why transfers only apply to the Droplet.
