Microsoft wants to punish free software

Microsoft may be punished for providing British doctors with free access to Teams during the coronavirus pandemic. According to UK companies, these moves are driving other players out of the market.

Microsoft gave NHS staff free access to its Teams communications platform in March this year. According to the available data, the service is used by about 1.2 million NHS employees. In addition, the free use of Teams has saved the UK millions of pounds.

However, UK-based companies found that during the pandemic, many healthcare providers would become accustomed to using the Microsoft platform and would find it difficult to abandon its use after the end of the pandemic. In their opinion, this will help drive out competitors from the market.
