When will Microsoft’s new storage limits for OneDrive take effect?

I started using OneDrive when I upgraded to Windows 10, taking advantage of the free 15Gb of storage offered, just like I do with my Google account. Well, it looks like the party is over; they are taking away 10Gb of that free storage and leaving me with 5Gb. When does this change take effect, and what happens to my stored data that exceeds the new, lower limit?
The changes will take place in the beginning of 2016, and you'll have a year from the time of the change to lower the amount of data stored to under 5 GB.

Here's what Microsoft said about it - "If you are using more than 5 GB of free storage, you will continue to have access to all files for at least 12 months after these changes go into effect in early 2016. In addition, you can redeem a free one-year Office 365 Personal subscription (credit card required), which includes 1 TB of OneDrive storage."
