3 Terrabytes.  I was talking about terabytes.

If the customer wants to stream off site that is their choice.  They didn't
ask for that, and seemed strongly adverse to adding to their recurring

Uh-huh.  Like a simple stack connected to the SCSI port.  Again... I am
bidding this against other companies so up sells have to come later.

Plus account fee.

Have you actually looked up Cat 6?  From what I have been able to find Cat 6
is just Cat 5e which is certified to actually meet Cat 5e standards.  There
