Google cuts Google Drive storage prices

Google has dropped the price of additional Google Drive storage by a considerable margin.

Users on the 15GB plan continue to pay nothing, of course, but everything above that is a fair bit cheaper now.

If you want 100GB of cloud storage space, you’ll now only have to pay $1.99 per month. Previously, it was $4.99.

Those who require 1TB of storage will make the most impressive savings though. That’s now $9.99 per month, which is down from $49.99. You can pay for more, but that should be enough for the vast majority of people.

Google explains a terabyte as “enough storage for you to take a selfie twice a day for the next 200 years and still have room left over.”

Google Drive isn’t just an online holding place for your files, of course. Your storage allowance is also used by your Gmail account to hold emails and attachments. Google Photos, too, uses Drive to hold your auto-uploaded mobile snaps in the cloud.

All of a sudden, that free allowance is starting to sound a little meagre, and these new low expansion costs a whole lot more appealing.

If you’ve already upgraded to one of these packages in the past, don’t worry – your monthly charge will drop automatically. Google has claimed that these price cuts have been made possible “thanks to a number of recent infrastructure improvements.”
