Beebs was first created in 2017, in which we saw very little users & traffic.
We now handle 60 thousand weekly users on the service, due to this demand we decided to start charging for Beebs from August 2018.
Servers & upkeep are not cheap but we do not believe that advertising should be the answer to monetisation. The money generated goes towards developers & server upkeep.
Due to constant pressure from having our service blocked, we may in future make Beebs a paid-only service. For now, Beebs is free for users who have it installed prior to August 2018 but is paid for those afterwards.
Most Beebs users are paying for the service.
