Dropbox doubles storage offering to paying users
Online storage company Dropbox is offering more space to its paying customers.
Services like Dropbox let people store their ever-growing trove of photos, music and videos online instead of on their computers. 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.
Dropbox said Tuesday that it will now offer bigger storage accounts for the same price. 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, but no price was disclosed.
The free version remains at 2 gigabytes.
