Recently, Google made some changes to their Google Apps engine. The changes include a $50 annual subscription fee for new and existing Google apps for business. Google also announced that the application that is used for the Government will be charged $50 per user. The only thing that remains free is the application that is used for education.
The charges for the business account will cover the 24/7 customer support, 99.9% uptime of services, and 25GB inbox storage. They want to create a whole new user experience for businesses and other government contractors.
