Smoothwall - advice/pricing
Just pricing up Smoothwall for 50 PC's for our school, this is the pricing.
£1500/year for the box (no support, just updates)
£600/year for content filtering (50 PC's)
£300/year for expedited warranty, under standard warranty it could take over a week to replace :(
Education services agreement, £600! which is support for the year, not unlimited either.
£900 for training onsite
I don't think I would mind if all these "extras" where included in the price, but the fact they're adding them on frustrates me.
Smoothwall is open source, so what's stopping me from just using my own box and installing it?
