Business standard plan -unable to increase onedrive for business storage from 1TB to 5TB

This issue can be reproduced in any business standard trial tenant 180265-bug.png

Business standard was one of the qualifying plan for unlimited storage. Now , we cant increase the storage even using powershell command. From admin center we can increase the storage at tenant level but user level even if we switch to org storage it still show as 1024 gb
Even in powershell command run successfully to increase storage but the storage dont increase

    I have the same issue. I set maximum storage last year for my tenant to 5TB. I used to work because one on my user could store more that 3TB in his OneDrive.
    But it seams that things have changed recently because all user are back to 1TB storage limit again.

    I have just bought a OneDrive plan 2 and assigned it to my user with more that 3TB of storage in his OneDrive but nothing changes.

    I'm in contact with Microsoft support but they don't answer to me (asking for screenshots, ...etc.) and gives no hand...

    Looks like a bug or a change in their policy.

    I had the same problem I opened a support ticket and this is the response
    all users dropped suddenly from 5120kb to 1024kb without notice

    Not for me. I still see max 1024 gb:

    "The maximum storage limit for this user is ‎1024‎ GB"

    and shows:

    "Same as organization's default limit per user (‎5120‎ GB)"

    probably they are resolving only escalated cases

    Now I will raise another thread for below statement which means if we have less than 5 users for e3 or e5 then we cannot expand 1TB storage

    SharePoint Plan 22 (unlimited OneDrive storage

    3 Microsoft will provide up to 5 TB of initial OneDrive storage per user based on the default quota for the tenant. Additional storage can be requested by contacting Microsoft support. Subscriptions for fewer than five users received 1 TB of OneDrive storage that cannot be expanded.
