SOS Online Backup has discontinued their unlimited storage plan and added new pricing to their website.
The switch was made sometime between the end of March and April 12, according to internet history at Archive.org.
The new prices are:
- 50 GB for $4.99/month, or $44.99/year
- 100 GB for $7.99/month, or $79.99/year
- 150 GB for $9.99/month, or $99.99/year
- 250 GB for $12.99/month, or $129.99/year
- 500 GB for $20.99/month, or $199.99/year
- 1 TB for $39.99/month, or $399.99/year
- 5 TB for $159.99/month, or $1599/year
- 10 TB for $299.99/month, or $2999.99/year
Gone is the “infinite” cloud storage plan. The same price you would have paid for that plan will now get you 100 GB. Quite a downgrade, in my opinion.
The decision seems to be a step back to 2014, when they offered 100 GB for $9.99/month. The new plans are less expensive, but not by much.
The new plans have the following features:
- Up to 5 PCs or Macs per account
- Unlimited mobile devices
- External hard drive backup
- Network attached storage (NAS) support
- No limit to file sizes or types.
The change is sure to disappoint potential SOS customers, and those who are searching for unlimited cloud storage. SOS will also face increasing pressure to differentiate their service from competitors. Unlimited storage was a main selling point of SOS, and in my review it was certainly one of my favorite features.
