Got the following from Google today…simply AMAZING!!!
Google storage update: More space for your photos and email
We wanted to let you know about some exciting changes to your Google paid storage plan. While storage costs have dropped naturally in the past few years, we’ve also been working hard to improve our infrastructure to reduce your costs even further. On Tuesday, November 10th, we increased the size of each of our tiers to make storage even more affordable and accessible. For the same $20.00 per year, you’ll now get 80 GB, 8 times as much storage as before. Your current plan will be automatically upgraded and your new quota will automatically show up in your account in the next 24 hours.
We hope you’ll like the extra space, but if it’s more than you need you can always change your storage plan or renewal preferences for next year in your Google account settings: www.google.com/accounts/

The Google storage team
I have been using Google gmail for many years (4-5 years), and storage space has exceeded the Free storage space (around 8GB). Hence I have paid to upgrade to the bigger storage space (extra 8GB per US$20) few months ago. It is amazing that Google now upgrade my account for free to over 80GB!!! I guess I will not be running out of space in the next few years! (of course still need to pay US$20 per year for the space).
Google is simply Amazing!
