Google Drive has been available for a couple years now, but it has been mostly overshadowed by other options. Now, in an attempt to increase their competitiveness, Google has slashed prices for their cloud storage service and is offering even larger capacities.
While the free option remains the same at 15GB, the entry option of 100GB is now just $1.99 a month, down from the old price of $4.99. The 1TB option is the biggest beneficiary though, as it's down all the way to $9.99 from $49.99 previously. Google has also introduced a jumbo offering for those requiring even more space, with 10TB+ now available starting at $99.99.
The new plans are set to take effect immediately, and current customers will be automatically switched to the new pricing scheme. Unfortunately, there still is no option for referral bonuses, but the generous offerings more than make up for that.
