OneDrive Gets A Massive Boost in Storage Plans

Announced yesterday on June 23, 2014, OneDrive will come with 15GB for FREE for everyone, which is up from 7GB. That’s a more than 100% increase from before. Kudos to Microsoft for this move.

Our data tells us that 3 out of 4 people have less than 15 GB of files stored on their PC. Factoring in what they may also have stored on other devices, we believe providing 15 GB for free right out of the gate – with no hoops to jump through – will make it much easier for people to have their documents, videos, and photos available in one place.

What’s even better, if you are Office 365 user, you soon will get 1TB of OneDrive Storage, up from 25GB before, which means

you will get the power of the world’s most popular productivity suite, Office, along with apps for your laptop, smartphone, and tablet, plus an enormous amount of storage, for an unbelievably low price.

What about the paid plan? It’s also got cut off by over 70%. The new monthly prices will be $1.99 for 100 GB (previously $7.49) and $3.99 for 200 GB (previously $11.49). That’s pretty cool and impressive.

All of these updates will take effect in the next month, for both new subscribers and the existing users.
