Google’s New 5TB Cloud Storage Plan

Google One has recently announced an attractive new offering: a 5 terabyte storage plan storage option, a much more reasonable upgrade from the 2TB plan, for just $25 a month. In the past, you had to had to ‘settle’ for 2TB at $10 per month or jump to 10TB at an eye-watering $50 per month.

If you have a lot of files to store, this can be a very attractive offering. It will especially appeal to professional photographers and to others with lots of pictures to store.

The new 5TB Google One storage option appears to be rolling out now. It may not be visible to all Google accounts, but it should finish rolling out soon.

You can find this and also search for lower-storage, lower-cost options at: https://one.google.com/u/1/storage.

After it ended free unlimited storage for Google Photos in June, many Google users had to figure out how to store images and other data in the Google accounts.

If you’re sure the 5TB plan will meet your needs, you can save a little money by prepaying for a year’s subscription; it will run you $249.99.

Other options include a 100GB plan for $1.99 per month, a 200GB plan for $2.99 a month, a 2TB plan for $9.99 a month, or a plan with 10TB of storage for $49.99 per month. 20TB and 30TB plans are also available, for $99.99 and $149.99 per month, respectively.
