About Public Affairs

LINX Public Affairs exists to obtain advance warning of public policy developments that could affect LINX members and the Internet community as a whole; to inform our members about important policy developments at a time when it is still possible to influence them; and to educate, inform and influence regulators and legislators.

About Public Affairs

Why public policy matters to your business

Internet Service Providers operate in a complex and uncertain regulatory environment. New domestic laws, EU directives and international treaties can make or break Internet business models. For your network to thrive, it is not enough to merely adapt to change – you need to be sure that the regulatory environment continues to support Internet innovation.

How LINX can help

As the UK’s largest association of network operators, LINX is uniquely well-placed to help you achieve your policy goals. Drawing upon the collective expertise of our 750+ members, we work to educate, inform and influence politicians and public servants on behalf of ISPs and network operators.

Our Public Affairs department can provide your business with a number of benefits, including:


We work closely with policymakers and regulators in the UK, Europe and internationally to promote effective policies that support self-regulation, investment and innovation.

Regulatory awareness

Through briefings, presentations and blog articles, we can help you keep up with policy developments that could affect your business.


LINX is mutually owned and controlled by its members. Everything we do is aimed at promoting the interests of current and future members, and is subject to their approval. Regular member meetings, board-elections and consultations give members the opportunity to directly shape our policies.


By working collaboratively with your company’s existing public policy team, we can send an even stronger message to government.

With over 770 members connecting from over 76 different countries worldwide, LINX members have access to direct routes from a large number of diverse international peering partners.
