Microsoft To Raise Enterprise Prices In UK After Pound Plunges

Businesses in the UK are about to get a double whammy. Due to the fact that the pound has fallen, Microsoft is said to be raising their prices for some enterprise services by up to twenty two percent. So, not only is your money worth less, MS wants more of it. Ouch.

Microsoft plans to increase prices for some enterprise services by up to 22 percent in Britain following the plunge in the pound, likely hitting thousands of companies and government departments who rely on its cloud and software products. Microsoft said it would increase prices for its enterprise software by 13 percent and for its cloud services by 22 percent from Jan. 1 next year, becoming the latest tech company to raise fees in the wake of the vote to leave the European Union.
