While one can only guess as to what kind of figure “numerous users” refers to, the problem speaks for itself. Much as how some took heavy advantage of unlimited mobile data plans, so too do some make liberal use of online storage. To this end, the following changes are being introduced to the OneDrive system. Says Microsoft:
- We’re no longer planning to offer unlimited storage to Office 365 Home, Personal, or University subscribers. Starting now, those subscriptions will include 1 TB of OneDrive storage.
- 100 GB and 200 GB paid plans are going away as an option for new users and will be replaced with a 50 GB plan for $1.99 per month in early 2016.
- Free OneDrive storage will decrease from 15 GB to 5 GB for all users, current and new. The 15 GB camera roll storage bonus will also be discontinued. These changes will start rolling out in early 2016.
