Google Drive Cuts Prices Way Below Dropbox and OneDrive

Google today slashed the prices for its Google Drive product, bringing its base price way below cloud storage competitors Dropbox and Microsoft’s recently renamed OneDrive.

Google said it would now charge $1.99 per month for 100 gigabytes (previously $4.99) and $9.99 for 1 terabyte (previously $49.99), with 15GB free.

Keep in mind that the different providers offer all sorts of freebies and incentives and have different tweaks to their accounting styles, but that now puts the price of 100GB at $23.88 per year using Google, $50 per year on Microsoft and $99 per year on Dropbox.

Google said it was able to reduce prices “thanks to a number of recent infrastructure improvements.” It noted that a terabyte is “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.”
