UK ISP BT Offers Extra Online Cloud Storage to Broadband Customers

Tuesday, Jun 24th, 2014 (3:05 pm) - Score 741

BT Consumer has today announced that their online file storage and backup service (BTCloud), which is free for all of their existing broadband customers (the entry-level packages include 5GB of storage and the top superfast BTInfinity service comes with 50GB), can now be upgraded with even more space (up to 500GB) for a small fee.

In short, all BT Cloud and existing broadband customers can now get an extra 50GB of BT Cloud storage for £3 extra per month and an increase to a whopping 500GB will set you back £9 per month.

David McDonald, BT’s Director of Broadband, TV and Sport Bundles, said:

The extra storage is added to the free allowance. For example, a customer on the Unlimited BT Infinity 2 package has a 50GB free allowance and can buy an extra 500GB for only £9 a month – so they will have 550GB in total.

We’re now even cheaper than some of our major competitors, including Dropbox. For example, 500GB at £9 per month saves you over £175 a year versus Dropbox, so we hope this will to appeal to many more customers*.”

The little * references an exchange rate difference (Dropbox is charged in $) and it’s also noted that Dropbox gives customers dedicated app access on some devices where BT Cloud is not available (e.g. Blackberry and Linux), alongside more collaboration features (e.g. shared space in the cloud that you can invite others to). It’s worth pointing out that Virgin Media’s rival cloud storage service charges £26.99 for 500GB (here).
