In a surprising move Google has slashed Google Drive storage prices, significantly undercutting Dropbox and Microsoft’s OneDrive.

Google users automatically recieve 15GB of storage across Google’s most popular services, but additional storage has to be purchased.

Today Google cut its storage pricing to $1.99 from $4.99 for 100GB, and $9.99 from $49.99 for 1TB. Above this there are a number of higher tiers, up to 30TB for $299.99.

The price changes are a hugely aggressive move in the enterprise cloud storage space. The equivalent 100GB plan — $1.99 with Google Drive — costs $9.99 with Dropbox, and $50 with OneDrive.

This means you can now offer your students and teachers 100GB of Google Drive storage for just £1.99 a month per user. Visit the Google Drive storage page to upgrade your plan.
