Usual monthly pricing:
100GB - £1.59/mth (£19.08 for 12 months)
1TB - £7.99/mth (£95.88 for 12 months)

New prepayment pricing:
100GB - £15.99 for 12 months (annual saving £3.09)
1TB - £79.99 for 12 months (annual saving £15.89)

Might be worth it for anyone currently paying monthly for the 100GB or 1TB plans.

Thanks for this. Even though it's only a £3.09 saving - it's still a saving for something I use all of the time :-)

Do they bill you in £ yet? previously it was only in $ which can incur charges

Is £79.99 a reasonable price for 1TB of cloud storage for a year?

Office 365 is £45 for a year and includes a 1TB One Drive account, or £60 for a 5 user account

I get billed in £

I still can't see the new pricing in Google Drive. Am I the only one?

Can get a 4TB HDD for less...

Yeah but completely irrelevant!

Earlier today (before I read this) I bought 100gb via the iOS app on my iPhone. I clicked buy (actually at £14.99 not £15.99) and nothing seemed to happen. No email nothing, anyway I decided to do it instead via chrome on a windows pc (I hadn't realised but that was £15.99) and received confirming email. Later on I got an email from apple confirming in-app purchase for google drive of £14.99. So now I don't know if I have paid twice or not. I have emailed googles and will wait what they say. Strangely the purchase does not show on my apple app purchase list despite the email so maybe I won't get charged..

Anyway despite my foolishness, this may well be. Pound cheaper via the google drive app on iOS on your iPad or iPhone..

​Surely you can connect the hard drive to your router so can access everywhere, so kinda relevant

Yup and it's what I do because it's better, more reliable and has less restrictions.

Depends what you use it for. I have apps that create backups of my websites to Google Drive and also need the extra storage space for emails.

You should post a deal, after all you've only posted one in 30 months of membership!

Yes, but it is still irrelevant. Cloud is not a classic storage solution. By having a 4TB drive this will not increase your email storage, it will not automatic upload/sync files/photos from mobile, and it definitely will not guarantee you, your data integrity or access to it.

A synology might be an alternative, a 4tb connected to a modem... nope. It is a way more expensive solution with more capabilities but still you can't match the data integrity and accessibility that Google/Dropbox/whatevercloud can offer.

The deal offered is good. Finally Google realised that there are people who dislike monthly recurring costs and want a one-off purchase.

But your data is no longer your own .. that is the key here .. At least you can keep your nas off of the net if you so desire.

Yep, done the same bought via my iPhone. No email confirmation as yet and storage details on my Drive account not yet updated to 100gb. Let's see what happens

Just wait you'll get an email in a few hours time, just don't do what I did!

I have spoken to Google and they couldn't see the Apple transaction but are looking into it, I suspect Apple will say its Googles' fault and vice versa...joy..

Use encryption if it's sensitive/important.

Seems like a good deal. A couple of questions if I may?
1.) If I purchase say 100GB for 12 months am I able to cancel this straight away so that it does not auto renew the following year?
2.) Once the 12 month period lapses I guess I will revert to the standard 15GB. What happens to the data that I have already uploaded that will have exceeded the 15GB standard limit? Will I be able to retain this data on Drive but just not be able to upload anymore files?

I hope my questions make sense

Yes the data will be retained but will be read-only. None of the big providers (Google and Amazon) will delete your content.

Thanks OP, I already use G Drive 100GB and pay monthly- I work out and about and having the ability to quickly save files to the Google drive means a safe way to backup my work files in case the laptop gets damaged/stolen etc.

I think the £79.00 for 1TB is too expensive but £15 for 100GB suits me fine for my relatively light backup requirements.

I can't either; as I'm currently billed in dollars, and with the exchange rate and credit card fee it comes to about £2 a month, I'd be interested in this.

I can certainly see the deal posted in £'s and have taken up the offer

How does the deal in this thread compare to the following deal?
