Microsoft offer a large range of 365 plans and add-ons to suit every requirement and budget. Businesses can get these from as little as £3.80 per user, per month, whilst many charities can qualify for free or hugely discounted (donated) licensing. Microsoft also offer qualifying not for profit organisations a £3,000 annual Azure credit, that can be used for a range of different cloud services, including offsite backups and virtual servers.
As Microsoft 365 is a monthly or annual subscription (SaaS) this is categorised as OpEx (Operational Expenditure) and helps avoid large capital expenditure (CapEx), to maintain cash flow.
To get the best cloud experience, you should have a fast business broadband connection. Depending on what services you plan to have on 365 and the amount of users and their usage, will determine if your existing connection is capable of delivering the performance to support the companies cloud working requirements.
Businesses planning to operate emails (Exchange), SharePoint and Teams from 365 or with 10+ staff should consider investing in one of our dedicated Leased/Fibre Ethernet lines from Spitfire Communications, for sustained bandwidth and performance, to make sure staff have a good cloud working experience from the outset.
In basic terms, businesses should understand that the speed of their Internet connection directly relates to the speed a document will take to access, download and save.

We have a wealth of experience in helping businesses move to Microsoft 365
