Oh thank goodness this is awesome news! I'm glad that so many people are as outraged as me but everyone was just saying "bye dropbox" and I'm over here like.. I still have the issue that its not easy for me to just cancel.

I am so outraged. I signed up to Dropbox for a 1TB account, paying monthly. I don't need 2TB nor can I afford the additional $60 a year they want to charge me for something I didn't initiate, ask for, or consent to. I just don't understand how they can do this. Their response so far: If you don't want the new upgrade you can cancel it. How is this a fair option to a customer? I can understand companies change their plans frequently (mobile providers, private health insurers) but I've never been forced to pay way more money and have no option but to leave.
I have almost 1TB worth of data in my account - none of which I have on hard-drives / local drives anymore. "just cancel" is an incredibly stressful option. I dont even have a device any more than I could downoad 1TB worth of data to - and I'm currently living in a home with rubbish ADSL2 internet speeds. Even if I did find a solution, to download it all and re-upload it to a new company/solution is a huge, epic undertaking which I don't even have time to do (its not like you click a button and walk away for a few days - I constantly get errors due to internet outages)
I am just so so angry and can't believe there is no solution to this problem. Surely this isn't even legal???
