SugarSync, makers of the award-winning SugarSync file sync,
online backup and file sharing service, announced it has more than doubled its
free service offering, and unveiled a new, free 5 GB plan.
Prior to this 5 GB plan being initiated, SugarSync offered a
free 2 GB account. Over the next day, existing SugarSync users on the 2 GB
service will be upgraded to a 5 GB account (no action required by users). The
enhanced service includes the ability to sync and access 5 GB worth of data
from an unlimited number of devices.
“Statistics show people’s storage needs double every two
years so this larger plan is better suited for today’s mobile consumer,” said
Laura Yecies, SugarSync CEO. “We believe our free 5 GB service will give
consumers a true taste of how SugarSync can support their fast-growing digital
lives by managing their data in their own Personal Cloud. This is by far the
most robust free, Cloud-based service for consumers on the market.”
SugarSync works with a wide variety of mobile devices, from
laptops to BlackBerry, Android-based phones and iPhones, and today’s most
popular tablets, such as the iPad and Samsung Galaxy.
