Google is offering a new plan for subscribers of its Google One service which offers a mid-way point between its $10 2TB plans and its $50 per month 10TB plans.
The new 5 TB plan costs $25 per month (or $250 per year) and offers the following features:
- 5 TB storage
- Access to Google experts
- Option to add your family
- Extra member benefits
- 10% back in the Google Store
- VPN for Android phone
Despite being a way-point between the eye-watering $50 per month plan and the cheaper $10 per month plan, if you intend to share your 5 TB with your family Microsoft’s OneDrive plan may offer more for less, especially if you use a Samsung handset, which integrates well with the Microsoft ecosystem.
For an equivalent amount of storage, Microsoft is offering 6 TB shared equally with 5 other family members, Skype and Office apps, all for only $99 per year or $9.99 per month.
Of course, if you are deeply into Google’s ecosystem this may not be an option, in which case Google’s new plan appears to be widely available as of today, but not for everyone at the time of writing.
