Microsoft Matches Google Drive By Doubling OneDrive Storage
Microsoft is beefing up its cloud storage solution by doubling the storage capacity of OneDrive and at the same time lowering pricing for its storage plans.
Getting the most out of the upgrade would be those with free accounts. Storage capacity for free users will be raised from 7GB to 15GB allowing users to store more documents, videos and photos in one place.
Office 365 subscribers will also get something extra. Those with an Office 365 Home subscription ($12.00/month) will get 1TB per person (up to 5 people) while those with Office 365 Personal ($9.00/mo) and University ($99.00/4 yr) subscriptions will also get 1TB of storage.
Meanwhile, those on paid plans will also be delighted with Microsoft’s announcement. The Redmond company is slashing over 70% off its monthly prices. The new pricing scheme will be $2.00 for the 100GB plan (previously $8.99) and $4.00 for the 200GB plan which was previously priced at $13.99.
The new pricing and storage capacity adjustments will take effect next month with current subscribers to be automatically moved to the lower prices.
