Google Drive Cloud Storage Service Sees Major Price Drops

The price of Amazon Prime may be increasing, but not everything on the web is getting more expensive. Google announced a series of major price cuts to its Google Drive cloud storage service.

Google Drive’s 100GB storage plan is now priced at $1.99 per month ($23.88 per year), while a more robust 1TB plan now runs $9.99 monthly ($119.88 per year). The first 15GB of storage space on Google Drive remains free.

Existing Google Drive customers will “automatically move to a better plan at no additional cost,” says Google Director of Product Management Scott Johnston on the Official Google Blog.

A cloud service like Google Drive is a terrific option if you need to access a diverse number of files over a number of different devices. Drive also interfaces well with the Google Android mobile phone ecosystem.

Just be warned, though: Once you start paying a monthly fee for cloud storage, it’s hard to turn back.
