Box.net increases storage quotas for both free and paid plans
Online storage and collaboration service Box.net has increased its storage allotments for all its plans, whether free or paid.
The free service now allows you to store 5 GB of files in the cloud (up from 1GB) with a per-file size limit of 25 MB. Premium upgrades include 25 GB of capacity for $9.99 or 50 GB for $19.99. Upping the file size limit to 1 GB is also possible for a fee.
For three users and up, there's the Business plan. This costs $15 per user per month and gives you a pool of 500 GB that's shared across your users. The file size limit is 2 GB.
An enterprise plan is also available, and this still has unlimited storage (the file size limit is still 2 GB) -- but you'll have to contact Box.net for a quote if you're interested.
As the limited amount of storage has been one of Box.net's weaknesses so far, it's good to see the company rectify that. Today's upgrades are already available for new users. Existing Box.net users will get the increased capacities over the next few weeks.
