Microsoft Slashing Cloud Storage Costs For OneDrive By 70%, Office 365 Backed By 1TB

The cloud storage market is hotly competitive, and amid the dustup between various providers, consumers are winning. The latest win for us is that Microsoft announced that it’s slashing the cost for its OneDrive cloud storage service by a whopping 70% and offering better freebies, too.

Every OneDrive user gets 15GB of cloud storage for free--up from 7GB--and the cost for Microsoft’s paid plans are suddenly quite low. You can get 100GB of storage for $1.99 or 200GB for $3.99. For comparison, the old prices were $7.49 and $11.49 per month, respectively.

Finally, Office 365 subscriptions are getting backed by substantial storage options. Office 365 Home costs $9.99 per month, which gets you 1TB of storage per person (up to five people). You also get 1TB of storage with the Office 365 Personal ($6.99 per month) and Office 365 University ($79.99 for four years), too.

The aforementioned changes will be enacted next month.
