Bandwidth increase justification for O365

Hello,

We currently have dedicated T1s at each site with 4 bonded T1s at corporate.  All internet traffic goes out corporate.  

We are going to be going to Microsoft Dynamics AX and Office 365 with Sharepoint and Lync online.  I have what we currently pay for bandwidth and have quotes for going to ethernet and now need to justify it.  Has anyone who has gone through this have any good slides, templates, ROI documentation they would be able to share or point me towards?

Thanks!

I would justify after the change to the AX and 365, tell them to try without before you increase bandwidth. Looking at from my side we squeezed the pennies on GP and on premise exchange with VMware....

without a total network before and after its hard to recommend a ROI for this since we did move through it about a year ago.

we stayed in the 20MB up/down fiber due to we got a intranet loop at 100MB intermetro for the same price.....

My only concern is when we roll out 700 people to 365 the internet pipe will come to a crawl and this will reduce productivity and to get to more bandwidth isn't quick.

We'd like to get to where you are at and at 1.5MB alone I think this is too low
