Amazon jacked up the price of Amazon Prime so what does Google do to keep up? Lower it’s prices. To be fair the services are unrelated. Amazon Prime is nothing like Google Drive. Cloud storage at one point was unlimited. However, after as files became larger, companies quickly realized that was not going to work out. Google, who is practically the internet is marking it at least affordable again. Google announced new plans for its Google Drive. Customers of the online storage service will still have access to 15GB of storage for free. If you want more space for your movies, docs and music it’s only $2 a month for 100GB, $10 for 1TB and $99.99 for 10TB. So for 100GB of storage you pay about $24 with Google Drive. It’s almost double that price for the same about of storage with Microsoft’s OneDrive which is $50. Love DropBox? So do I but its $99 for that same 100GB. Looks like its time for a switch.


Having launched Google Drive just two years ago, we’re excited that so many people are now using it as their go-to place for keeping all their files. Whether it’s all the footage of your kids’ baseball games, the novel you’re working on, or even just your grocery list for the week, we all have files that are too important to lose. Today, thanks to a number of recent infrastructure improvements, we’re able to make it more affordable for you to keep everything safe and easy to reach on any device, from anywhere. How big is a terabyte anyway? Well, that’s enough storage for you to take a selfie twice a day for the next 200 years and still have room left over for… shall we say… less important things.
