Get up to 250GB storage for your GMail
Two months ago, Yahoo! started giving its email users unlimited mailbox storage. Since then, the battle for the email storage got heated with the ante going on Yahoo’s side. I thought it was just a matter of time when Google would offer GMail users unlimited storage too or something close to what Yahoo! E-Mail is offering.
That hasn’t happened yet, but for those hungry for more mailbox space, how about a 250GB upgrade?
Your current GMail is somewhere around 2.8GB right now. Check here to see your actual usage. If you’re almost at the brim, then go get yourself an upgrade. However, they’re not free. Looks like Google is going the paid model this time.
Four upgrade packages you can choose from:
- 6 GB ($20.00 per year)
- 25 GB ($75.00 per year)
- 100 GB ($250.00 per year)
- 250 GB ($500.00 per year)
Order an upgrade here, using Google Checkout.
It’s a little weird to learn that while Yahoo! is offering unlimited storage totally free, Google is charging you for it. Yeah, I know, it’s a complete opposite of what people got used to. All along we thought Google’s model is free and ad-supported but in this case, Yahoo’s the one doing it and Google’s charging.
In time, this will all pan out and we’ll see who wins the battle for your beloved Inbox. If you remember, Google Answers (a paid service) shut down year ago then Yahoo! Answers took over that realm quite successfully (followed by LinkedIn).
