Verizon Wireless is getting into the cloud business in a big way.
In the coming weeks, Verizon said Tuesday, it will deliver cloud-based storage for smartphones and tablets. The company’s customers will receive 500MB of storage at no charge, but can get up to 125GB of storage. Verizon is offering four storage plans to customers:
- 500MB: Free
- 25GB: $2.99 per month
- 75GB: $5.99 per month
- 125GB: $9.99 per month
“The secure storage app gives customers a place to back up and access their information,” Verizon public relations manager David Samberg said Tuesday in a blog post. “Additionally, as customers use multiple devices, sometimes running on different operating systems, Verizon Cloud will allow for the transferring of some content between Android and iOS devices, making it accessible across smartphones, tablets and computers.”
Verizon’s cloud storage will roll out in the coming weeks on Android first. Support for iOS devices will be “following soon,” Samberg said, while support for other operating systems will come “later this year.”
