Google Basic G Suite to Google Workspace Business Starter – A Comparison

Google Workspace | |

As you may be aware, Google is now moving all previous G Suite customers to an equivalent Google Workspace plan. 

This means that you will need to move your account over to a package. The new Google packages are slightly different to the previous ones – varying in both features and price.

Here is a simple comparison table of the G Suite Basic plan, compared to the new Google Workspace Business Starter plan.
