If you pay for online storage, Google’s making it easier for you to save a few dollars. The company announced on its blog a drop in pricing for its Google Drive service, a cloud-based drive that lets you store files, anything from music to documents to videos, and share them as well.
The monthly plans start at $1.99 for 100GB (previously $4.99), $9.99 for 1TB (previously $49.99), and $99.99 for 10TB of storage.
If you need even more, Google offers storage at 20TB and 30TB for $199.99 and $299.99, respectively.
Every Google account comes with 15GB of free storage on Google Drive. “How big is a terabyte anyway? Well, thatâ€™s enough storage for you to take a selfie twice a day for the next 200 years and still have room left over forâ€¦ shall we sayâ€¦ less important things,” said Google. “Like before, storage continues to work across Drive, Gmail and Google+ Photos.”
It’s great news for mobile warriors or people who store large files (like photos or high-definition video) online. It’s bad news for its competitors like Dropbox or Box.net, who-in some cases-don’t even offer the amount of storage Google does.
