SugarSync to discontinue free tier of service in February 2014

updated 03:08 pm EST, Tue December 10, 2013

New plans range from $75 per year to $250 a year for individuals

SugarSync, a premium service that lets users back up, access, sync and share all files and folders across all their computers and mobile devices announced today that it will transition to a paid-only service model beginning on February 8. Customers can still try the SugarSync service with a 90-day 5GB trial, or a 30-day trial with upwards of 60GB.

"There are many companies in this space that are giving away free storage, however, most of these companies will not be viable. We are already in a solid financial position, and this shift will further strengthen our business," SugarSync CEO Mike Grossman said of the change. "Also, this change will allow us to better serve loyal customers and expand our service offerings. We're excited about the next stage in our growth, and confident that our customers and new users alike will achieve greater value through these enhancements."

Prices after the free trial will range from 60GB for $7.49 per month (or $75 per year), to 250GB for $25 a month (or $250 per year.) Businesses have plans available as well -- 1TB for $55 per month, or a custom solution can be developed for the user by SugarSync.

    Maybe so, but we will continue with these services, by such small companies as Microsoft & Google, until such time as none are available.

    Been thinking of trying out the transporter Sync as well, you buy the device but then there are NO limits.
