Watching a behemoth like Amazon suddenly muscle into your turf the way music locker service mSpot did this week must be a chilling experience. But the small digital music company responded quickly today by unveiling a new pricing structure designed to keep itself on par with the much larger competitor.
The company increased its free storage level to 5 GB from 2 GB. Additional storage remains $4 a month for up to 40GB. It also hinted at a "second phase" of the music locker service that will include new music discovery features.
mSpot, like Amazon, also launched its music locker service without label licenses, but it has been in negotiations with the labels ever since to update its capabilities. It claims more than 1 million downloads of its Android app alone.
