As a business Grandlan has to adjust for current economical upkeep costs, so it must change it’s prices for some it’s products. Starting June 1st of this year Grandlan will be increasing the cost for PC and Xbox access to $3 dollars per hour of use across the board. One can mitigate this cost through one of our fabulous VIP memberships that Grandlan has to offer. We do appreciate your business and support over these last 9 years. Thank you for your understanding!« Older posts
