Mix PowerBI PRO and PREMIUM PER USER license for the same domain

Hello Sirs.
Our company are implementing different report in Power Bi but only for some users we need PPU Licensing.
-It's possible to mix PRO and Premium per user Licenses?
-If it's possible, how will work? For example the user of Power BI Pro will be not able to access to report bigger than 1,024 GB?
-If at the moment for testing purpose we will purchase only few licenses of Premium we can change our plans later and unsubscribe the PREMIUM plan?
-PowerBI PRO and PREMIUM can survive together in the same domain (example.com)
Thank you in advance for the help

You can buy different type of licenses for different user groups in your organization. However be mindful that content developed by premium per user cannot be accessed by the user with pro license. 

So, if not all the teams in your organisation requires advanced features then you can opt for a combination of pro and premium licenses. Otherwise, generally large organisations follow this ( Pro licenses for developers, Free licenses for content consumers and Premium capacity to host the workspaces) and small organisations opt for Premium per users licenses. 

The billing cyle and other things will be based on the aggreements you organisation hvae with Microsoft, I would suggest you contact the sales team for those questions.

Hi, @giogua0483 

As @tharunkumarRTK  says that different types of licenses can be purchased for different groups of users in your organization, here are some additions that make it easy for you to compare the differences between the different licenses.
1. The workspace/report/app created with different licenses must meet the requirements of the following figure:

If the report is created by a PPU, users with a Pro license will not be able to access the report.

2. The following table shows the comparison between the licenses:

3. Premium Per User(PPU) is the lowest entry-point for Power BI Premium features. It's built upon the Premium platform with built-in mechanisms ensuring that PPU users can use the platform’s ability to scale. PPU is designed to support enterprise workloads including Power BI items with size limits equivalent to that of a P3.

Power BI Pro is an individual user license that lets users read and interact with reports and dashboards that others publish to the Power BI service. Users with this license can share content and collaborate with other Power BI Pro users. Only Power BI Pro users can publish or share content with other users or use content that's created by others, unless a Power BI Premium capacity hosts that content. 

4. The image below illustrates how the Pro license works:

5.You can cancel your subscription from within the Microsoft 365 admin center. To cancel your Premium subscription, do the following.

1.Browse to the Microsoft 365 admin center.

2.Select Billing > Your products.

3.Select your Power BI Premium product from the list.

4.Under Subscription status, select Cancel subscription.

5.The Cancel subscription page will indicate whether or not you are responsible for an early termination fee.

Read through the information, and if you want to proceed, select Cancel subscription.
