    Depends on the equipment and type of service.

    There is a wide range of contracts available (which are called SmartNet contracts)..

    8a-5p with next business day response is $113.92. (Most basic)
    8a-5p with next business day onsite response is $143.61.
    8a-5p with 4-hour/onsite resposne is $205.90.
    8a-5p with next day/onsite response is $143.61.
    8a-5p (3 year) multiyear support is $226.60.
    OSP (IOS updates and hardware onsite support) - $226.60
    TAC Access is $164.51.
    24 hour/7 days a week support is $180.84.

    NOTE: These prices are MY PRICES from Cisco. I get top tier pricing for their products and services, so you may wish to add about 9%-12% to each of those prices for general public purchase. I figured I'd post my prices to keep it as accurate as possible. If I were to mark it up, prices could be off as to what you'd usually pay.

    Also, these are the most basic and widely used plans. As I look through my price book, I have access to over 200 agreements.. basic SmartNet, then it goes on to Advanced replacement, then to Comprehensive Premium.

    You guys must be Gold. We're only Silver and can't discount Smartnet.
