I personally use the free version. the company has the enterprise version of the solution. I'm not a part of the licensing process internally and therefore do not have details in regards to how much the company pays to use the enterprise version,

The licensing model that they have is annoying. One of the things that we struggle all the time with is people that have left the team or the group. We have lots of application teams that are using GitHub. People are moving constantly between organizations, they're moving to different teams, they're moving out of development. There's really not an easy way to track who's still using licenses. If they've vacated the position unless somebody goes back into the active directory and actually removes them from the group, they're still holding onto a seat and we're still trying to figure out, how to manage this so that their seat automatically gets reclaimed when people are moving around and it's not a very straightforward process. It takes a lot of effort on our part to try and keep the inventory seats available and managed properly.

The private repositories are free, which is very good.
