[2] 10G port prices at LINX Scotland and LINX Cardiff will not be charged in 2018, but is expected that they will apply in 2019.

[3] Any member taking a 10GE port at LINX NoVA will not be charged for that port until they are doing more than 1GE of traffic. In the interest of simplicity and standardisation, traffic will be measured in 5 minute intervals and billing will be triggered when traffic at the 95th percentile exceeds 1,000Mbps. At this time, the member will be billed for the port as listed in the service fees.

Port Congestion

To ensure high quality peering each port is expected to run at no more than 80% utilisation on average. If a port exceeds 80% on average over a month there will be a port congestion charge applied. LINX staff will endeavour to notify members if they are approaching this utilisation, however members are expected to be aware of their own utilisation using real time usage graphs provided by LINX and their own systems.
