Google Drive Statistics: The Numbers You Need To KnowApril 27, 2012 3:17 pm
okay, Google Drive is out. What are the numbers you should know? We spotted something today thats basically a summary of all you need to know:
1. 5GB Free
2. 25GB for $2.49 a month
3. 100GB for $4.99 a month
“But Google outdoes Dropbox by giving you 5GB of capacity for free, 25GB for $2.49 a month, or 100GB for $4.99 a month — via Google Wallet, of course. (Or, if you’re feeling like pushing the envelope, there are other tiers including $50 a month for 1TB and $800 a month for 16TB.) Dropbox’s free tier ends at 2GB (unless you cajole your friends into joining with your referral code), then jumps to $9.99 monthly for 50GB or $19.99 monthly for 100GB.
That’s more expensive than the existing Google prices for overflow storage space at Picasa and Google Docs, which can be had for $50 a year for 200GB compared to $210 for Google Drive. That’s because Google expects much more active use, with data being sent to and from multiple devices frequently. “This is something we expect people to use with high utilization a lot,” Pichai said”
