The following is an excerpt of something I posted in another forum,
which seems relevant here:
> Recurrent Costs
> Connect Charge $ 45.00
> Monthly line charge $ 20.00
> Charge per KB of message use $ 0.35
> Total Recurrent Costs per month $ 65.35
The connect charge is typically a one-time charge, no?
Also, at 0.35 per KB, a small organization transferring, say, 10
pages per day of email (at 2KB per page), would incur a monthly
volume charge of about $175, in addition to the other monthly charges
shown. A somewhat larger organization transferring 50 pages a day
would incur a charge of $875 monthly. Details at
Follow links to Regions and Countries, Africa, AfricaLink, Technical
Backgroung Documents, Internet Service Provider Costs, then under
Notes, Estimated Monthly Costs for a Small Organization. The
corresponding table (back up one screen and click under Data) provides
estimates by service provider and country.
This is the table I provide to USAID Missions and partners for budget
planning purposes. Corrections appreciated.
