Dropbox adds another terabyte to some cloud storage plans at no additional cost

You might recall the Google One announcement from a few months ago. Google's new storage plans are an even better deal than they once were with 2TB for $20 per month. That made Dropbox look a little behind the times with its 1TB offering. Today, Dropbox is catching up, at least in terms of total storage.
