Thank you for continuing to use Uservoice as a feedback platform for DigitalOcean. You have done an amazing job helping us guide our product roadmap. We are looking forward to releasing more exciting new features in the near future. Stay tuned!
PS> We are evaluating the rollout of private networking in the other regions. If we are unable to roll it out in the specific region we will be adding another region in the same geography which will support it as well as all future coming network enhancements like IPv6 and elastic IPs.
