Microsoft has announced increases to its hosting licensing prices effective 1 January 2019, that will affect ITCO ZoomCloud Hosted customers.

The good news is that ZoomCloud will not increase current charges for ZoomCloud customers who are still inside the first 12 months of their hosting contract.

However, ITCO customers who’ve been on ZoomCloud for longer than 12 months will see a price increase reflected in their January 2019 invoices.
