With the only stakeholders in LINX being the members, the exchange can operate without the commercial pressure to make a profit and can instead concentrate on being the best Layer 2 connection provider in the world. This means fees are directly related to the cost of building and running the network and associated services.
As the membership grows everyone benefits from economies of scale, which means we are often able to reduce the cost of connection. LINX has reduced fees every year for the last 10 years.
The LINX membership fee is payable by all members and, for 2016, is set at £1200 per annum. Each port order or port move has a one-off installation charge. Unlike many Exchange Points the installation charge includes the cross connect required to connect your equipment to our switches. The charge varies by cable type and location though it does not apply to those joining via a vLAN.
