Cloud storage is more affordable than ever with Google’s latest price cut for Google Drive. Google announced the massive savings on its blog on Thursday, a surreptitious reveal just hours after Amazon jacked up Prime prices. Under the new plans, customers will have access to 15GB of storage for free while rates will be $1.99 per month for 100GB (previously $4.99), $9.99 for 1TB (previously $49.99) and $99.99 for 10TB. Re/code has put those numbers into perspective with comparisons to other cloud storage services: a year of 100GB of storage now costs $23.88 on Google Drive, $50 on Microsoft’s OneDrive and $99 on Dropbox. Head over to your Google storage settings if you want to upgrade your account or check to see your new rate.
