Google is lowering the prices of its Google Drive subscriptions, putting further pressure on its rivals.
The 100GB tier has been dropped from $4.99 to $1.99 per month, while the 1TB option has been slashed by $40 to $49.99. Google is also offering some larger storage options, starting at $99.99 per month for 10TB.
That’s considerably cheaper than some of its rivals. Dropbox currently offers its pro tier, for $9.99 (100GB), $19.99 (200GB) and $49.99 (500GB) per month. Microsoft, meanwhile, offers 50GB for $4.49 and 200GB for $11.49 per month. No matter what data allowance you’re interested in, Google is now offering some of the cheapest monthly rates.
Of course, each service has its own interface, features and customer support to consider. Even so, Google is making a persuasive argument for adopting Google Drive and it’ll be interesting to see how its competitors respond.
