It is now clear why Airtel discontinued Google Apps powered airtel mail service that was offered for free to their broadband customers.
The company has ditched Google to pick Microsoft as their new partner.
Airtel would migrate the service to a Microsoft powered platform and guess what… They are charging for the new service.
The costs are Rs. 112 per email id per month. It appears that users would only get 1GB of storage on the new platform.
The company is also not guaranteeing that you would be able to retain your existing email address.
Funny thing is that Airtel claims that the new platform is ‘reliance, stable and professional’.
