Businesses that need large capacity online storage accounts are being offered 10GBytes for free by US-based online service Streamload.com.
The new service is a warning shot at the likes of Yahoo, Google and AOL who are promoting and developing their own high capacity online storage services for e-mail, video, pictures and music.
Yahoo for instance, charges £9.95 a year for a 2GBytes capacity e-mail account. The Streamload service allows users to store up 10GBytes for free, but only download up to 100MBytes a month.
But for £2.75 a month, Streamload will provide users with unlimited storage and allow them to download up to 1GBytes a month. For £5.50 a month they can download up to 10GBytes a month, as well as have unlimited space.
Higher tariffs are available for greater download allowances from Streamload.
