Telstra today announced price cuts for the Microsoft Office 365 packages that it sells through T-Suite, its software portal for small businesses.

Microsoft said in March that it would be cutting its Microsoft Office 365 prices, and confirmed at the time that Australians would be getting in on the action.

Telstra said today that it had passed Microsoft's price cuts directly on to users. Australian businesses can only purchase it via Telstra's T-Suite service, unless they obtain it via enterprise agreement. Prices for enterprise agreements have also been reduced.

The changes in the prices are as follows for T-Suite:

No changes were made to Microsoft Office 365 (Plan P1), Microsoft Office 365 (Plan K1), Microsoft Lync Online (Plan 1), Microsoft Exchange Online Kiosk, Microsoft Office Professional Plus, Microsoft SharePoint Online and Partner Access products.

Telstra's existing Office 365 customers will automatically receive the new, revised price on their next bill.

Australians still pay more for Office 365 products than their US counterparts, as they do for many technology products. This is being looked into during a pricing inquiry announced by Senator Stephen Conroy over the weekend.

  • Last time I looked it's still 50% cheaper than standing up and running an Exchange or Sharepoint Server ! FYI We are getting a price cut quicker than our US counter parts, please keep in mind all those who have taken up Office 365 in the states are on a 12 month contract and have to wait to contract expiry before they can take up the discount. Australian's only go month to month.
