Unlimited Storage AND Bandwidth for Flickr PRO’s

Now why and when did the upload bandwidth counter die for Flickr PRO users? This thread on the Flickr Central forum just made me aware of this surprising, brouhaha-less fact from this smart Yahoo-acquired photo-sharing service.

For $24.95 (PHP1,200++) a year, a PRO account is entitled to:

-Unlimited uploads
-Unlimited storage
-Unlimited bandwidth
-Unlimited photosets
-Permanent archiving of high-resolution original images
-The ability to replace a photo
-Ad-free browsing and sharing

Last time I checked, there was a 2GB bandwidth upload limit for PRO accounts, and ads may still be shown on your stream.

This news is a pretty intense kick in the arse for people justifying that Zoomr seems to be a worthy alternative. Now, if only Flickr had a referral ticket for breaking this news out, and for PRO user signups.


…the two gigabyte monthly limit is no more (yep, pro users have no limits on how many photos they can upload)! At the same time, we’ve upped the limit for free account members as well, from 20MB per month up to 100MB (yep, five times more)!

And a Merry Christmas to you, too, Flickr!

  • does flickr actually make money by selling pro accounts? the last i heard they only had a few thousand subscribers.

  • Good question, and I don’t have the answer to that either. Err, Yahoo just sustains them?

    Its easy to compare them to an online service like YouTube, where one would easily think ‘how can this company make money with their bandwidth costs’? And YouTube even serves very visible, prominent ads; while Flickr doesn’t!

  • I think Yahoo! wants to get hooked, knowing that these subs would buy something in the future.

    Note that Flickr is also taking sponsorships from camera manufacturers.
