Offer additional bandwidth packs

I love the simplicity of Digital Ocean, but I would like to be able to purchase additional bandwidth packs (instead of upgrading to more RAM/disk space when I simply do not require it).

EG: i'm on the 512MB plan, I use up my 1TB and do not wish to upgrade to the 1GB RAM plan to get another TB. Can we pay another $x to buy a 1TB/2TB/5TB/10TB addon for the droplet?

    but another 1TB costs only 5$ with upgrading the droplet, why not offer a "only bandwidth" upgrade, to be fair .. since .. 20$ is more than 10$ for 2TB of Bandwidth with more storage and ram.

    for my case, i don't need more cpu,ram,diskspace, but maybe i need an other 1-2 TB /month

    That's correct, any additional bandwidth is just $0.02 cents per GB.

    Thanks!

    Additional b/w is already at 2c/gb (~$20/TB).
