How to Calculate the Cost of a Slow Network?

The equation is Cost= P x W x E (R + S)

P = Total number of hours lost Productivity
W= Average hourly Wage (times 1.4 to include overhead)
E = Number of Employees
R= Revenue (total annual revenue/number of employees/2080 annual work hours)
S= Service Charge
