Google is apparently ready to combat Microsoft's recent OneDrive announcements, along with other cloud storage services like Dropbox, Box and others. Today, the company revealed big price cuts on its Google Drive premium storage subscription services.
How big? While the amount of free storage Google Drive gives its users will remain at 15GB, the company announced today that due to "a number of recent infrastructure improvements" it will cut the price of 100GB of storage down to $1.99 a month, compared to its previous price of $4.99 a month. An even better deal happens at the 1TB level; Google Drive is now pricing that amount of storage at just $9.99 a month, compared to its earlier $49.99 a month.
Google continues to offer a way to purchase even more storage space if needed, all the way to 30TB for $299.99 a month. People who are already subscribers to Google Drive plans will see their prices drop automatically.
It will be interesting to see if this will get a response from Microsoft. While it renamed its SkyDrive service to OneDrive a few weeks ago, and gave 3GB of free extra storage for people who used the Camera Roll functions, it didn't alter its prices for more storage space.
