How can Microsoft justify a 26% (TWENTY SIX) price increase in Australia RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am normally as very strong supporter of MS and its products but when I received this in my Inbox this morning I could not believe the size of the increase. I could understand a CPI increase or even a little above it but 26%! I am only a small user of the system at the moment but this will make me think twice about using Azure for future projects.

    Surely, you cannot be attributing this ridiculous price change to the reduction of the value of the Australian dollar against the US dollar at the moment? Frankly Microsoft, this is insulting to your Australian customers and will no doubt drive prospective and existing customers to other providers.
