As more and more cloud services battle for your online storage needs, Google has now announced it will significantly cut the price on its Google Drive plans, undercutting much of the competition.

The full monthly pricing breakdown is $1.99 for 100GB (down from $4.99), $9.99 for 1TB (down from $49.99), and $99.99 for every 10TB if you need some truly huge storage, up to 30TB at $299.99. If you're not looking to pay out for storage, the free allocation currently sits at 15GB.

Back in 2012, Google Drive limited you to 5GB of free storage, and the maximum plan was 16TB for $799.99 per month. As Google puts it, even just a single terabyte is "enough storage for you to take a selfie twice a day for the next 200 years and still have room left over for… shall we say… less important things."

If you already paid for Google Drive, you've already been bumped to the more affordable options. And if you're just signing up, be sure to allow yourself enough time to upload those images—stashing your terabyte of backups online might take a few days to sort out!
