Google Drive is now 10x cheaper than Dropbox

Posted by Jon Haslett on 01 May, 2014 in Google

Over the last few years Dropbox has become my preferred way to sync files and documents between computers, tablets, phones, and the cloud.

In 2012, Google upgraded Google Docs turning it into a full blown cloud storage solution called Google Drive. Drive works much the same as Dropbox, through syncing a folder on your computer with the cloud and making your files accessible on your phones and tablets.

By default, Google gives away 15GB of storage for free with every Google account, or 30GB if you're using Google Apps for Business.

Google Drive has always had the option to pay for additional storage; however, they recently slashed the price of cloud storage, making it 10x cheaper than Dropbox.

Need more space? Now you can get 100GB of space for $1.99 per month, or a massive 1TB of space for just $9.99 per month. The new prices are very competitive when compared to Drive's main competitor Dropbox, who offers 100GB of cloud storage for $9.99 per month.

Here's the full pricing table for Google Drive storage.

If you'd like to upgrade your Google Drive storage, simply login to your Google Account and then head over to https://www.google.com/settings/storage.

Are you already using Google Apps in your Business? Google Drive storage can be purchased directly from Google, without affecting existing Google Apps for business contracts.
