(The Hosting News) – Google has made its cloud storage service, Google Drive, more affordable for its customers by slashing its prices by as much as 80 percent.
On Thursday the Mountain View based company announced that it had lowered its 100 GB monthly plan from $4.99 to $1.99 and its 1TB plan from $49.99 to $9.99.
Meanwhile, 10 TB and more will start at $99.99 while the first 15 GB of Google Drive storage remains free.
“How big is a terabyte anyway? Well, that’s enough storage for you to take a selfie twice a day for the next 200 years and still have room left over for… shall we say… less important things. Like before, storage continues to work across Drive, Gmail and Google+ Photos,” states Google’s blog.
Existing users will automatically be upgraded to a better plan for no additional cost.
Google’s cloud storage service is available on Gmail, Google+ Photos, and Drive.
