With more people depending on cloud storage solutions spawned from switching between multiple devices and computers throughout the day, it’s no wonder Box.net is taunting us with a small but sizable storage increase.
Last week the Palo Alto-based company that enables people to share and access content from anywhere announced an increase in storage of 4GB on their free data storage plan. The personal “free” plan now starts with 5GB of storage, up by 4GB, while on the business side (starting at $15/month) users have been boosted from 15GB to 500GB (maximum of 15 GB per user) offering plenty of storage for everything you want to securely store and access from anywhere.
Competitors in the space like Dropbox offer 2GB on their free plan, while other beefier plans like Mozy require monthly subscriptions starting at $4.95 for, but do not offer the sharing and access from anywhere options. Will this storage increase spur an online wide tsunami to boost free plans for the new year?
