Can I mix and match different Office 365 plans?
Yes, you can mix and match Office 365 plans. Please note that there are
some license limitations at the plan level. The Office 365 Business, Business Essentials, and Business Premium plans each
have a limit of 300 users, while the Enterprise plans are for an unlimited number of users. For example, you can
purchase 300 Business Premium seats, 300 Business Essentials seats, and 500 Enterprise E3 seats on a single tenant.
Is Internet access required for Office 365?
Yes, you need Internet access to install and activate all Office 365 plans and to manage your subscription account. You also need Internet access to use Office 365 cloud productivity services, including email, conferencing, IT management, and other services. Many Office 365 plans such as Office 365 Business Premium and Office 365 Enterprise E3 also include the desktop versions of Office. One of the benefits of having the desktop versions of
Office applications is that you can work offline and have the confidence that the next time you connect to the
Internet, all your work will automatically sync, so you never have to worry about your documents being up to date.
The desktop versions of Office applications are also automatically kept up to date and upgraded when you connect
to the Internet, so you always have the latest tools to help you work.
