Microsoft Dropped Prices for OneDrive Storage

After Apple announced its iCloud Drive storage pricing plans, we compared it to its competitors, including Microsoft's OneDrive. At the time, we noticed that OneDrive storage prices were much higher than offerings from Google or Apple. In order to solve this problem, today Microsoft announced the reduced pricing plans and increased free storage provided to every user.

Free 15 GB for Everyone. 1TB for Office 365 Subscribers

According to Microsoft's statistics, most of the users have less than 15 GB of files stored on their computers. Based on this data, Microsoft has decided to double the free online storage space provided to every user from 7GB to 15GB. In addition to increased free storage, all subscribers of Office 365 will receive the 1TB of OneDrive storage. 

Cheaper Pricing Plans

For people who want to buy more storage space for their OneDrive, but don't want to subscribe to Office 365, Microsoft will provide much cheaper upgrade rates than before. The new pricing plans will be $1.99 per month for 100 GB (previously $7.49) and $3.99 per month for 200 GB (previously $11.49). These prices are putting Microsoft on par with Google Drive and recently announced iCloud Drive.
