Cool, but it's not the price that bothers me, it is the up and download speed that does, there are so many other providers out there that has so much more features.

Not everyone stay in a 1ste world country, they must build muti threading and limiters for bandwidth into the icloud apps.

And also sharing with links and between icloud accounts like Dropbox.

Good move by Apple - best pricing amongst the top cloud storage providers now. And they let you share your storage with family members.

Still only 5gb free? Want a joke. The premium price of Apple hardware should atleast give you double that free.

That's seriously good value plus the family sharing as well. Dropbox and Google Drive is currently $10 for 1 TB.

Sorry but in my opinion , office 365 Home subscription offers a way better deal.

For about R1000 a year (you can get for 700 if you see any deals) includes not only office but 1tb of onedrive space.

Since you can share it with 5 people, that's 5tb of online space. With the onedrive app, you can auto upload photos from photos app on Idevices and easily share with others (like iCloud).

Same... Just paid R605 ex vat for my second year. I've noticed that it actually allows more than 5 installs... it seems to be licensed per email address and not per machine - I've used the same email address on multiple systems that I use, and they all appear as licensed installs in my dashboard.

5 devices per user ! This is one reason why office 365 home is so much awesomeness. And 60 landline Skype minutes per user per month too. Use it to call elderly relatives in UK and Aus ... :)
