Additional Service(s) Fees

The LINX PI service offers a unique, fast, and simple way of establishing a dedicated connection between two LINX members. It provides a simple and cost-effective solution for members with significant individual traffic flows to other LINX members. Our PI service is available at the following sites;
  • Telehouse North, North 2, East and West: £2000 per 8 pairs of fibre install, £500 Annual recurring
  • Digital Realty, Sovereign House: £3000 per 6 pairs of fibre install, £500 Annual recurring
Patching between members within the same building (Intrasite connection) can be requested through our NOC. Each patch will be carried out as soon as possible from request and has a £100 install charge. There is the option of an additional £400 one-off fee (£500 total) to expedite any PI patch requests within a 24-hour deadline. This additional fee is to cover LINX’s costs of sending an engineer to the site for an unscheduled visit. To enable private peering between Telehouse North, Telehouse North2, Telehouse East, and Telehouse West, a cross-connect is required between the LINX PI ODF in each site. 1 single-mode fibre pair between buildings:
  • Install: £1000
  • Annual recurring charge: £2400
Note that, as with all LINX services, the LINX PI Service may not be used as part of your backbone and is reserved for traffic between two members.

Colocation allows your business to host your server in a third-party environment and share their bandwidth as your own. Moving your on-premises server into a data centre means that you can leave the time and cost of maintaining its environment to your colocation provider. LINX colocation services are available at the following sites;

  • LON1 and LON2 – Equinix Slough, Interxion, and Telehouse North, West, North 2
  • LINX Scotland – Pulsant South Gyle
  • LINX Wales – BT Stadium House
  • LINX Manchester – M247
