Will Digital Ocean Droplet speeds change in the future?

I get about 1000 - 2000 mbps for both down and up speeds but I was wondering if in the future that if Digital Ocean gets way more popularity, would this number lower?

Hello @Filice

Yes, we are always improving and striving hard to provide the best performance to all our users.

All droplets have a 2Gb/s interface, but certain network conditions between you and your server will affect network speed. If you’d like to see some benchmarks, you can test your download speed and latency to our datacenter locations with our test files available at:

You can also ping and traceroute the hostnames to measure the latency. Let us know if you have any other questions!

Hope this helps! Keep us posted!

Cheers, Sri Charan
