Support HTTP/2 on load balancers

Digital Ocean's new load balancers only support HTTP 1.1. The text protocol and lack of multiplexing in HTTP 1.1 means it's MUCH slower than HTTP/2.

One of the pages on our site loads in 600ms on nginx running HTTP/2, and 1.8s on HTTP 1.1. We'd love to be able to use DO Load Balancrs but the slowdown isn't worth it.

        Absolutely. I came here to suggest this. Please support HTTP/2 for the DO Load Balancers. The benefits of doing so are huge, especially for TLS connections.
