The worst kept secret about G Suite

G Suite is Google’s term for everything under one roof, Gmail, Docs, Drive, Calendars and more in easy collaboration and administration. It also comes under the name of Google Business. To setup an account it costs $10 and you need a domain name. The domain name is the method of verifying the whole account setup.

From there it is 5$ per user if you want to add-on more ‘accounts’.

The popular tech identity Linus media groups did a video about Google Drive which thankfully they didn’t figure out you don’t need to buy several users to get unlimited storage (most likely saving the secret)….

The video received mixed responses on /r/datahoarder. Perhaps putting this ‘loophole’ on knifes edge. But for now yes you can get unlimited Google Drive for $10 per month.
