You can save a ton if you drop the requirement for full routes. Ask for a
simple default route and then calculate your most used routes offline and
upload that daily to the switch.

I believe if you have just a few thousand routes, your outbound will be
nearly the same as with full routes. Your inbound will be exactly the same,
as even the smallest device can announce your prefixes.

PS. ZTE has a ZXR 8900e switch with 8x 10g with 1 million routes for less
than 10k USD. A ZTE 59e switch with 4x 10g with 30k routes is about 3k USD.
