Unlimited Amazon Cloud Drive storage plans announced

Amazon on Thursday added new unlimited storage choices for Cloud Drive, which will complement existing options available to Amazon Prime members.

There are two subscription choices available. One option will set you back $11.99 per year and provides unlimited storage for photos and 5GB of storage for everything else, such as videos and files. A second option will set you back $59.99 per year and provides unlimited storage for whatever you want to store, including photos and videos.

The completely unlimited option comes at a pretty amazing price when all things are considered. Google Drive, for example, is free with 15GB of storage, but you’ll pay $1.99 a month for 100GB, $9.99 a month for a terabyte and $99.99 a year for 10TB. Amazon doesn’t have a cap at all – just a flat $59.99 per year fee no matter how much you store.

Amazon told Wired these plans will coexist with free storage that’s already available to Amazon Prime members and includes the same features as the $11.99 plan. Both plans feature a free 3-month trial, so you can try them on and see what fits best.
