Microsoft has announced increases to its Service Provider License Agreement prices, effective 1 January 2019, that will affect Enprise’s ExoHosted customers.
The good news is that Enprise will not increase current charges for ExoHosted customers who are still inside the first 12 months of their hosting contract. Prices will only increase on the 12-month anniversary of the first live month of the contract.
However, ExoHosted customers who’ve been on ExoHosted for longer than 12 months will see a price increase reflected in their January 2019 invoices.
