Google Drive receives hefty price cuts, 100GB for just $1.99 a month

by: Andrew GrushMarch 13, 2014


Starting today, Google is significantly cutting down the cost of Google Drive storage. While you still get the same 15GB for free, you can now jump up to a sizable 100GB for just $1.99 (previously $4.99) a month.

For those looking for 1TB of data, you’ll see a savings of 80% over what Google used to charge. Instead of shelling out $50 a month, you’ll now only have to pay $9.99 — which is an impressive amount of space for the money. Need 10 TB or more? You can get 10TB for $99.99 a month, with an additional $10 per additional TB. The max available storage space size is 30TB.

With the new price cuts, Google Drive’s storage offerings just became a hell of a lot more competitive. In comparison, Box’s pro pricing is 100GB for $9.99, $19.99 for 200GB and $49.99 for 500GB. Turning to Microsoft’s OneDrive you’ll find 7GB for free, 50GB for $25, 100GB for $50 and 200GB for $100.


For Android users, Google Drive was already an obvious choice due to just how well it works with the platform. Now with the new pricing, a good thing just became even better. What do you think of Google Drive’s latest pricing compared to other alternatives out there? Do you use a competing service, and if so, will the new pricing make you consider switching to Drive? Let us know what you think in the comments!

    It will be unlimited storage for free in not too distant future…. But they will stick an AD to every document for sure.

  • MasterMuffin

    Drive is too unreliable and slow for me to use it :/

    • Jayfeather787

      Huh. I’ve never had problems with it. Very fast and reliable, but I guess not everyone has it the same.

      I was having issues the other day but I think that had more to do with the size of the file I was streaming (2-4GB) than the service.

  • Phil Rigby

    Would be cool if you could back up your system to Drive – especially if it can be encrypted too…. a full system backup for $1.99 a month. I’d buy it.

    • Shark Bait

      You can!

      • Phil Rigby

        I’m sure there’ll be something in the T&C’s to try and stop me from uploading my Adult Entertainment files :-)

        • Shark Bait

          Sure you can, its encrypted!! Go nuts Lol!!!

          • Corey Watford

            How do you do backups?

          • Shark Bait

            are you rooted?

          • Phil Rigby

            I meant computer backups, not phone, but if you are rooted and have Titanium on there, you can back up your phone system to Drive (or Dropbox too if you prefer)

    Daaaaaamn! 2$ for 100TB per month? This is way more then a bargain. Will register + my already 15 gigs from gmail ;-) Way to go #Google

    • Tuấn Ankh

      you just made the deal 1000 times sweeter., lol.

    • MadCowOnAStick

      yeah, $2 for 100TB. totally.

      • MasterMuffin

        But GB = TB right? ;)

  • systemupdate

    I think they would have attracted more people with $9.99 for a year for 100GB.

  • Otto Andersson

    I was going to switch to Dropbox because they support Linux with their application, but no other online storage can compete with this. I was already paying ten bucks a month and my Drive storage basically went up 500%.

    This severely decreases the value of the Chromebook Pixel though :p

  • Winston Purnomo

    MIcrosoft ain’t got shit on this.

  • Nelson Guttman

    Sweet Jesus!! That’s hell of a bargain.. Wow! What I’m actually interested in knowing is what happens to the data if we don’t pay up for a month.. Does anybody know?
