You lost me a bit there what do you mean the cost of downloading is too high or the costs of buying the downloads is too high?

Well then go into your profile and subscribe to the available newsletters. They are a rich source if information as well as quite a lot of the available White Papers.

The only things that I've personally run across are third party supplied spec sheets which they want to be paid for and even then most only require registration with that company.

For the bulk of the available White Papers go to this URL and downloads as required. Anything directly from TR is free it is only the Third Party supplied things that some want to be paid for many of the members here at TR give these type of things freely as they are wishing to help their Peers.

For instance I've just downloaded the VoIP Strategy Core White Paper on the top of the side bar with only my TR login Info required and answering which OS I would be using it on and even then because I'm logged in I don't think that I even needed to fill out that request other than the OS involved so I got the correct one for my needs.

I've just downloads several White Papers ranging from VoIP the CPU specs to Migrating to W2003 all at no expense or much more than answering a few questions of where I live and what OS I'm using. The most that you can expect from these Third Party White Papers is a follow up E-Mail asking do you want to buy something.

I only tried about 10 at random and everyone downloaded without a problem and there was no question of paying for the downloads.

Only the downloads marked "For Tech Pro Guild Members" are not free.

That said, you used to be able to get a 1 month trial Tech Pro Guild membership.

That would give you a way to download some of the TPG content.

Better yet, sign up for a few months and download what you need. Then cancel your TPG membership.
