My neighbor comes to me about a small startup billing business, he requires an information technology design specification that will meet a tight budget $5000.00.

A UPS (one for each workstation) will protect both hardware and software from the common occurrence of power dips and surges that can cause damage and require maintenance and repair. The cost for each workstation with all the items I have discussed is $1500.00 U.S.

An ADSL premium service will meet the needs of the new business while also staying below the monthly budget constraints. It will provide Internet access at a bandwidth of 6 Mbps download and 768 Kbps upload which will cover the needs of a small business that uses the Internet for primarily email. This service includes a main email account and up to 10 sub-accounts however I recommend adding the Business Email service from AT&T which features 25 email addresses and a domain name for the business that will properly identify the new business to existing and future customers
