Google adds insanely cheap new pricing to Google Drive

The price of most things these days tends to inch slowly skywards as time goes on. Not Google Drive.

In a blog post penned by Scott Johnson, director of product management at Google, the company announcement that it had changed the pricing plans on its Google Drive service. 

“We’ve lowered the price of our monthly storage plans to $1.99 for 100GB (previously $4.99), $9.99 for 1TB (previously $49.99), and $99.99 for 10TB, with even more storage available if you need it,” Scott said.

This puts Google far ahead of it’s biggest competitors in the cloud storage space, DropBox and OneDrive (previously called SkyDrive). Below is the pricing schedule for OneDrive on a yearly basis. Google Drive’s prices are scheduled per month.

Wondering if you need a terabyte of space? Scott says that if you “took a selfie twice a day for the next 200 year, you’d still have room left over for… shall we say… less important things.”

“Like before, storage continues to work across Drive, Gmail and Google+ Photos. And, of course, the 15GB plan remains free,” he added.
