Special 50th edition of the LINX magazine, HotLINX, out now!

10th July 2017

LINX has published a special expanded edition of its membership magazine, HotLINX, to mark its 50th issue. The lead story is news that London has been revealed as the most connected city in the world following research by the Wireless Broadband Alliance.

HotLINX began as an eight page newsletter and has undergone a number of redesigns since then. Readers can see just how many for themselves by turning to page 23 where all 49 previous covers can be viewed.

HotLINX was first published in the year 2000 and the Internet world then is very different to the one we live in today. As the telecoms landscape has evolved so have the subjects that have been covered. For this edition we look a range of industry topics such as IoT and cloud services as well as other technical topics including route servers, automation and DDoS.

This edition also features a review of the LINX AGM and Board Elections in May. Seb Lahtinen was re-elected for a second three year term along with Lee Hetherington, Edge Network Strategist at Facebook. Lee has been interviewed in the 'In the Spotlight' feature on page 21.

Here's a selection of some of the other stories included in this issue:


It has been announced that NaMeX members Convergenze and SED Multitel connect to LINX via IXP Reseller programme. We also have a bumper section dedicated to LINX activities in America where there's been impressive growth at LINX NoVA in Q2 this year.


In our industry news pages we report on what could Ofcom’s new UK Code of Practice mean for ISPs, the end of mobile roaming charges in the EU and the facts and figures behind EE’s Glastonbury temporary network. There is also a report on the merger of Digital Realty and DuPont Fabros Technology in $7.6 billion deal.


In a four page events section we preview LINX98 in Manchester and the 12th European Peering Forum in Lisbon which take place in August and September respectively.
