Google is cutting the price of thier Google Drive storage offerrings. The most drastic of these is the 1TB option, previously available for $49.99 per month, and has been dropped to $9.99 per month. The most expensive option presented is 10TB for $99.99 per month, though Google says you can get more if you need it. Users will still get 15GB free, and the storage applies to multiple Google services, including Google+ and Gmail, according to Google:

We've lowered the price of our monthly storage plans to $1.99 for 100GB (previously $4.99), $9.99 for 1TB (previously $49.99), and $99.99 for 10TB, with even more storage available if you need it. How big is a terabyte anyway? Well, that’s 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. Like before, storage continues to work across Drive, Gmail and Google+ Photos. And, of course, the 15GB plan remains free.

If you don't use Google Drive, do these new prices make it a more attractive option? Let us know below in the comments.
