Windows 7: Technet - is it worth renewing this year

I'm in the same position as kodi. TechNet was well worth the subscription cost this past 12 months however I'm unsure I'll renew it for a while as I doubt I'll need anymore keys than I already have and it's a lot of money to spend if it won't get used.

Does anybody know, if I renew my sub will I get 10 more keys? I doubt it but you never know I guess. I'm due to renew at the end of this month but am undecided still. I'm thinking I should just download as many keys as I can now while I still can

I have downloaded all the keys and ISO's that i think i might need just in case.
Technet sent me an email stating there will be a new type of subscription available after 14th june, will wait and see what it is.

Yeah

I got my original sub for $307 - I'd be interested if they matched the exact same amount.

That's what I thought. I might just download as much I can and save my money for another new toy (a USB3.0 external drive perhaps )

Mine was to run out 7 June so I couldn't wait until the 14th to see the different in the "new" offering but I did renew anyway, it's still a very good deal to me, for what I've "used" so far I would have paid much more.
