Government competition chiefs demand fairer use terms for cloud storage customers
"Google and Microsoft are among the major cloud providers yet to commit to the government's push for fairer terms and conditions for online storage customers.
The government-backed Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) is calling on cloud storage firms to commit to introducing fairer terms and conditions for customers. This is to prevent them being caught out by sudden price hikes, unexpected service terminations and unscrupulous auto-renewal tactics.
Computer Weekly contacted Google, whose Drive service offers users 15GB of free online storage, for clarification on its support for the CMA’s call for commitment, but had not received a response at the time of publication.”
