They're $1.99 and $9.99 per month respectively

Google is heating up the online storage competition by slashing some of its Google Drive prices. 

According to Google's official blog, the company is cutting the price of its monthly 100GB plan from $4.99 to $1.99, and is majorly slashing the price of its 1TB plan from $49.99 to only $9.99 per month.

The 15GB plan remains free, while 10TB is $99.99 per month, 20TB is $199.99 per month and 30TB is $299.99 monthly. 


These are some great deals, considering Google Drive competitor Dropbox charges $9.99 per month for 100GB.  

"Having launched Google Drive just two years ago, we’re excited that so many people are now using it as their go-to place for keeping all their files," said  Scott Johnston, Director of Product Management at Google. "Today, thanks to a number of recent infrastructure improvements, we’re able to make it more affordable for you to keep everything safe and easy to reach on any device, from anywhere."

"Is it for the ease of access when remote? To share space with someone for file exchange?"

Yes and yes, and also highly useful to share files with yourself from work to home to phone to tablet. I put all my files and utilities and sevearal other things I work with alot on Google drive and have it available to me wherever I go. Nothing confidential, just useful stuff.

It makes sense. I know a lot of people that use Dropbox for that which is what this seems to be targeting.

For $2.00 I think its a win. Its at the right price point for people to say why not. I think its safe to assume most people have more than 15gig of pictures and music but might have less than 100gig less in Photos and Music and $2.00 for an offsite backup is throw away money you almost have to do it.

If Google implements a de-dupe because most music uploaded will be duplicate then even better for them to cut down on space.
