RESOLUTION 1 (Ordinary Resolution)

THAT the re-appointment by the Board of Pieter Knook as Chairman for a further term of three years commencing 1st December 2022 shall be approved.

RESOLUTION 2 (Ordinary Resolution)

THAT Price Bailey LLP be re-appointed as auditors at a remuneration to be determined by the Board.

RESOLUTION 3 (Ordinary Resolution)

(these notes do not form part of the resolution but are issued for clarity) Resolution 3 approves changes to the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) regarding the requirement for all members to purchase a peering service. The change will allow more networks and companies to become members, therefore increasing the value of LINX membership for all members. By reaching a larger group of networks, LINX value increases for the larger content providers and networks, who will increase their capacity on the exchanges, therefore adding more value for all members. This has been the subject of a members’ consultation – see and the proposed changes.

THAT Clause 1.4 of the LINX Memorandum of Understanding (LINX MoU) be replaced by:

1.5 Operational use of a peering service is achieved by:

1.5.1 connecting to at least one of the LINX peering LANs; and

1.5.2 peering with the LINX collector router; and

1.5.3 peering with at least one existing LINX member or the LINX route servers.


THAT Clause 1.1 of the LINX MoU be replaced by:

1.1 As a LINX member you warrant that you are, and will continue to be, a recognised legal entity or incorporated association.


THAT Clause 1.5 of the LINX MoU be replaced by:

1.4. If you do not make operational use of a service listed on the Service Definition and Fees Schedule within three months of becoming a member of LINX, or subsequently do not maintain operational use of any such service for more than twenty-one days continuously, then this shall be regarded as a material breach of this MoU.


THAT Appendix 1 – Clause 4.2 of the LINX MoU be replaced by:

4.2 AS numbers used in BGP-4 sessions across the LINX network shall be ASNs assigned by one of the Regional Internet Registries (or their predecessors) or an alternative agreed by the LINX membership, and shall not be from ranges reserved for private use. The only exception to this is when a BGP speaker is collecting routing information for analysis and not for immediate routing decisions. In this case the BGP speaker may use a private AS number. If it does so it shall not advertise any routes.
