The Redmond giant, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), has now revised the overall pricing for the SkyDrive. Microsoft revamped the pricing structure of the current plans and increased the amount of free storage from 7 GB to 15 GB.
Company is now serving its customers with plans to have slashed prices. Microsoft took the right decision by cutting down the price; now a user only needs to pay $1.99/Month for 100 GB and $3.99/month for 200GB. Previously both the plans were priced at $7.99 and $11.99 respectively. But the big news here is that all the Microsoft Office 365 subscribers, including student, family and individuals, will receive a 1TB of storage, which was previously just 20GB, for just $6.99(personal).
The OneDrive team said, “It’s also clear that you want more than just the ability to store your stuff in the cloud. You want to be able to share it, to collaborate on it, and so much more. The landscape is changing to the point that we believe it’s no longer enough to provide only cloud storage — that’s table stakes. We want to provide a complete experience that brings in the power of Office and lets you do more with everything you put in your OneDrive — whether it’s sharing your favorite photos with the people you care about in one simple click or working together in real time on an important project.”
OneDrive is trying to stack up with the Google Drive. The Google Drive is yet another cloud storage option, but has more options to extend the storage. Google Drive offers a free 15 GB storage which can be extended up to 100 GB for $1.99/month or to the 1 TB plan at price of $9.99/month. Google also offers other storage capacity plans such as one with 500GB.
After the Google Drive and OneDrive, MEGA offers a free storage of 50 GB. However, it does limit the bandwidth to only 10 GB, which is not in the case of the Google and Microsoft.
