No, the transfer between your Droplet and Block Storage is free of charge.
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.
Thank you @hansen ! All clear already! :D

What are the file/directory limitations of block storage? For example, is it possible to store any number of files inside a single directory?
And if there aren't any practical limitations, are there any performance issues that may arise when storing lots of files (hundreds of thousands, possibly millions) inside a single directory?
Is there any time frames on additional rollouts of block storage to the other datacenters? Or which datacenters are getting them next?
Is there a way to expose a block storage mount point to multiple droplets?
