Microsoft's Onedrive Team have blogged that storage plans are to be changed:
Here are the changes:

  • We’re no longer planning to offer unlimited storage to Office 365 Home, Personal, or University subscribers. Starting now, those subscriptions will include 1 TB of OneDrive storage.
  • 100 GB and 200 GB paid plans are going away as an option for new users and will be replaced with a 50 GB plan for $1.99 per month in early 2016.
  • Free OneDrive storage will decrease from 15 GB to 5 GB for all users, current and new. The 15 GB camera roll storage bonus will also be discontinued. These changes will start rolling out in early 2016.

So storage for normal users will drop to 5GB which if you already have data stored online you'll need to back it up. There are several free alternatives to be found around the Internet and if your struggling to find storage this link may help:

Time is running out if you want to keep your full 15GB of Onedrive storage. This offer will run out by the 31st of January 2016 and unless you've 'opted in' your storage will drop to 5GB!
In early November, Microsoft announced a sweeping set of changes to OneDrive, specifically by dropping its free storage options from 15GB to 5GB, dropping unlimited free storage that came with some Office 365 plans, and by dropping some paid plan tiers. Of course, this caused a bit of a firestorm, and in December, Microsoft backed down, giving current OneDrive users the opportunity to keep their 15GB storage plans by opting in.
