Clarify bandwidth costs

I find the current wording a bit lacking details :p

Q: Do you charge for bandwidth?
A: Yes. Plans start with 1TB per month and increase incrementally. Once the monthly transfer limit has been exceeded it is $0.02 per GB thereafter.

Is transfer count limited to outgoing data or both directions ?
Is transfer between 2 droplets in the same region counted ? what about between 2 different regions ?

    Updated, when private networking is deployed it will be updated as well.

    Thanks, ideally this should be in the FAQ and/or in the ToS :)

    It is for outbound data transfer on the public interface.

    When we roll out private networking you will be able to transfer data between virtual servers on the private nics with no charges in the same datacenter.

    Transferring data between virtual servers in different regions will be charged since that will traverse the public network as we are not yet intending to bridge the private networks between various DCs.
