Asus is one of the largest tech corporations in the world. It has launched several phones, laptops, etc. It offers cloud storage service as well.
This morning I came to know that Asus is offering 1TB cloud storage space for just $14 to select/all of the customers. The 1TB plan for regular users costs $99. For Asus laptop, tablet, phone users, it costs only $14. Why 70+ % price drop? Well, the offer went live on 19th January, the day Asus Webstorage service first went live.
