Internet Security Threat Report 2014

BT Cloud, the telco's own Dropbox-a-like offering, was launched in February. But BT has only just gotten around to telling its BT broadband customers about it.

Perhaps it's because it's only allowing them 2GB of free BT cloud storage space.

Here's the BT announcement – but before you hit that link, cast your eye over these free cloud storage offerings:

  • Box Consumer - 5GB
  • Microsoft SkyDrive - 7GB
  • Google Drive - 15GB
  • Dropbox - 2GB - 18GB with 500MB per referral
  • Baidu in China - 1TB
  • Qihoo 360 in China - 1TB
  • Tencent in China - 10TB

Okay, that sets the scene, now hit the link above.

Hmmm. On the other hand, it'll certainly be handy for transferring files from one device to another... ®
