London Internet Exchange reduces the cost of connection

The London Internet Exchange (LINX) is implementing price cuts amounting to £1.9million ($3million) over the coming year.

From 1st January 2013, LINX's 440+ members will enjoy reduced port fees on the two London peering LANs, as well as continued free 100Mb and 1G ports on the Manchester peering LAN.

LINX's CEO John Souter said: "These price reductions reflect our commitment to lowering peering costs for LINX members. They also reflect the advantages of our mutual, not-for-profit business model. As a mutual, our customers are also our shareholders, which means that our entire focus is on improving the network and providing better value for our members."
