More open spaces for Dropbox customers.
Dropbox, the system allows people to store their growing collection of photos, music and videos online instead of on their computers, will now offer bigger storage accounts for the same price. They’ve become more popular as people get used to storing files over the Internet. Competitors include Google Drive from Google Inc. and SkyDrive from Microsoft Corp.
Those paying $10 a month or $99 a year will now get 100 gigabytes instead of 50. Those who pay $20 a month or $199 a year will get 200 gigabytes instead of 100.
The company is also adding an option for 500 gigabytes for $50 a month or $499 a year. The free version will continue to remain at 2 gigabytes.
