    Annual Budget

    Hi Guys,

    I'm sure that there are many other threads on this, but what's your annual budget?

    I'm only after three bits of info, Budget, Users and Client Devices (so I can get easily compare!)

    People from the UK only please :-)

    I just got given a sum a lot less then 10k to do all maintenance and upgrades with, we have 900 kids on roll and about 400 devices.

    I reckon including all licensing, Internet feed etc, I will spend about £45k (maximum) this year. So about £45 per student.

    40k minimum for internet, licences, consumables, maintenance etc for 1,400 clients and 1,550 users.

    When we do a major network overall or project then we are provided with an additional budget required to match the needs.
