In June we compared OneDrive, Dropbox, Box, MEGA, iCloud, Google Drive and a number of other cloud storage providers.
Some providers like MEGA offer as much as 50 GB of free storage but as we pointed out the MEGA interface in particular is extremely slow and painful to work with. In addition to that is 50 GB really enough? If you use the cloud to back up your pictures, videos and important files you pretty quickly have taken up that storage space.
The different providers are fighting for customers and Dropbox has now announced a number of new features when it comes to sharing control and safeguard for lost devices.
If you are a Pro user and pay $9.99 per month, you just got 900 GB of additional storage, just like that.
“We don’t want you to worry about choosing the right plan or having enough space. So today, we’re simplifying Dropbox Pro to a single plan that stays at $9.99/month, but now comes with 1 TB (1,000 GB) of space.”
This puts them on par with Google Drive however there are other alternatives out there which give you more storage for your money – Unlimited storage at Box starts at $15, MediaFire charges you $2.49 for 1 TB.
