Two years on from the launch of Google Drive, Google has today announced significant reductions to the monthly fees that it charges for the higher tiers of the popular cloud storage service.
The company’s 100GB plan is now available for $1.99 per month (previously $4.99), the 1TB plan is now priced at just $9.99 per month (previously $49.99), and the 10TB+ starts at $99.99 per month. As before, users can still access 15GB completely free of charge.
By way of comparison, DropBox – one of Google Drive’s main competitors, charges $9.99 per month for 100GB, and $49.99 per month for 500GB.
Existing Google Drive users will automatically get switched to the new plans at no extra cost, while new users can sign up for one of the new plans by heading over to www.google.com/settings/storage.
