Gmail Users to Get Even More Space, Much Quicker

October 13th, 2007 at 2:28 PM (9 years ago) by Matt Freedman

GmailThe Gmail Team recently announced that they’re stepping up the Gmail space counter to give us more space much quicker. This is part of their Infinity+1 Storage Plan.

As of writing, the current space is 3110 MB. Approximately every 11.8 minutes you get another MB. So, doing some calculations based on these numbers (and assuming the counter has a consistent increase), on October 28, 2007, Gmail users should have 5 GBs of space! Going forward with these calculations, Gmail should have 10GB on December 21, 2007, just in time for Christmas! Still assuming the counter stays at the same consistent increment (not very likely), Gmail users would have 100 GB by December 15, 2009.

Sweet!
