Microsoft Hikes U.K. Enterprise Pricing By Up To 22% As Pound Plummets Post-Brexit
Microsoft has announced that it’s increasing pricing on some of its products in the U.K. by more than 20 percent, as the British pound continues to suffer in the wake of Brexit.
Beginning January 1, 2017, Microsoft has revealed that “most” of its enterprise cloud services will see an increase of 22 percent to “realign close to euro levels,” while its enterprise software will see an increase of 13 percent. “We periodically assess the impact of local pricing of our products and services to ensure there is reasonable alignment across the region, and this change is an outcome of this assessment,” explained Microsoft’s Sergejs Cuhrajs, in a blog post. “These changes are similar to the recent harmonization adjustments to pricing in Norwegian krone and Swiss franc we made in April 2016.”
