As LINX is an organisation run by its members, the members are consulted about any proposed changes to the way LINX is run and its formal governance documents.

Any proposed changes are first raised at a quarterly LINX member conference, but proposals are then summarised here before being brought as a formal resolution to be voted on by the members at a General Meeting of LINX – usually held at the February or November member conferences.

Current Consultations

October 2023: Changes to MoU

This is a membership consultation on proposed changes to the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).The changes concerns clause 1.6, Appendix 2, clause 5 and Appendix 3 clause 5 of the MoU, which currently outlines the requirement for a member to be allowed to vote at a General Meeting.

During the 2023 AGM, the board presented a proposal to amend the MoU, aiming to grant LINX membership to networks seeking an alternative service to peering. The change of the MoU was approved at the 2023 AGM. The change of the MoU was approved at the 2023 AGM. 

Subsequently, we have discovered that in addition to the modification made in May there are three additional clauses that require a member to have operational peering in relation to voting. Allowing this MoU discrepancy to persist would deprive some duly admitted LINX members of their voting rights. It is also inconsistent with the Articles of Association of the company, which grant each member an equal vote.

To rectify the current situation and restore consistency in the MoU, the board issues the consultation with the intention to vote on these changes at the 2023 November EGM.

A member consultation paper sets out the details of these changes and the reasoning behind them.

The member consultation on these changes begins October 5th 2023. To be considered by The Board, member comments should be sent to by October 20th 2023.
