Carbonite Adds Features, Ups Price

Boston-based online storage provider Carbonite said yesterday it plans to increase the cost of its service from $49.95 per year to $54.95, effective March 16. But customers will get added features for the extra money—notably the ability to access the files they’ve back up from any compute via a Web browser. “Remote access is a feature our users have been eager for us to include because it gives them the freedom to access their backed-up files even when they’re not at home,” David Friend, Carbonite’s CEO, said in a statement.
