is there additional cost for lightning connect/external objects?

Has anyone implemented external objects/lightning connect? It’s my understanding that lightning connect is simply a rebranding of external objects.

Is there an additional licensing cost to use external objects? I don’t see much mention of it but found some info. here on the investors site regarding lightning connect:
http://investor.salesforce.com/about-us/investor/investor-news/investor-news-details/2014/Salesforce-Launches-Salesforce1-Lightning-Connect-The-Fastest-Easiest-Way-to-Integrate-Any-Data-Source-with-Salesforce/default.aspx

Salesforce1 Lightning Connect is priced per data source and monthly subscription pricing starts at $4,000 per month.

Can anyone confirm this either way?

Answer

Yes, I can confirm that Lightning Connect is an additional cost. See your Account Rep for details on cost.

Note: The product is now referred to as Salesforce Connect.
