I have heard that people who have a current Symantec Backup Exec support plan are eligible for free product upgrades to the latest version of the product.

How much will it cost me to purchase such a Symantec Backup Exec support plan that will make me eligible for free product upgrades to Symantec Backup Exec 2010 R2?

it depends per customer, some get more discount. do you buy it directly from symantec or other company?
i suggest you to call symantec only they can give you the exact pricing. others can only tell what they pay.

Check with a reseller like Dell or CDW for pricing as well.  make sure you you list your license descriptions that you have installed.  If it is just standard, then this should be an easy task.  I am going to go on a limb and guess it will be $250-$450
