Dropbox today announced that it is increasing the amount of storage space available to many of its paid subscribers for no additional charge.
Starting today, Dropbox Professional accounts get 2TB of storage space, while Business Standard teams have access to 3TB of shared storage space.
According to Dropbox, its new storage limits give customers more freedom to free up phone and hard drive space, share large files, and work with Dropbox's Smart Syncing features.
All new Professional and Business Standard accounts include the upgraded storage today, while storage for existing accounts will be upgraded in the coming weeks.
Dropbox is not increasing storage space available for free tiers or its Plus accounts. Free storage space remains limited to 2GB, while Plus subscribers will continue to have 1TB of storage space.
Dropbox Professional is priced at $19.99 per month or $16.58 when paying yearly. Dropbox Business is priced at $15 per month per user with a minimum of three users, but pricing drops to $12.50 per user when billed yearly.

Apple leads the pack with $9.99/month for 2 TB.
That is not to say Dropbox and iCloud are anywhere near feature parity. For me to fully embrace iCloud and recommend it heartily to others, it would need versioning, ability to control which files and/or folders can remain offline, and support for storage space larger than 2 TB.
Yeah those are fun, as long as it's a 4 year university or a college that doesn't delete your account or deactivate it the moment you're done. I've lost one (and all its data) this way because the admin thought I was a student not coming back. My wife lost hers after a summer program stint.
I did have a Google Business account with unlimited space. That was fun. Only problem I don't like about Google Drive, when a person's account is deleted, all their files are bye-bye if the admin chooses to do so. That and I don't use Google anymore if I can help it.
