Service Fees Breakdown

Monthly Port Access Fees

All members also pay a port access fee for each physical port purchased on any peering LAN, 10GE and over.

  • 10GE*  = £80 per month
  • 100GE = £320 per month
  • 400GE = £640 per month

 

* The port access fee for the first 10GE port on each LAN is considered covered by the membership fee; the indicated price is for the second and subsequent ports of this size on the same LINX LAN.

 

For LINX NoVA & LINX Nairobi the monthly port access fees are as follows;

  • 10GE* = $100 per month
  • 100GE = $400 per month
  • 400GE = $800 per month

 

All members pay the £100 per month LINX membership fee in addition to their port access fee.

 

 

Monthly Peering Fees

Once you have purchased a port, you can then add a peering service to that port. The fee will relate to the bandwidth of peering services provisioned on the physical port.

You will see we have introduced fractional 1Gbps, 2Gbps and 5Gbps peering services over 10GE physical ports, as well as fractional 30Gbps peering services over 100GE physical ports.

Only one peering service or bundle of aggregated ports per physical port.

** The first 1Gbps peering service on each LINX LAN is included in the membership fee, these prices are for additional 1Gbps services on additional 10GE ports

*** Members who are interested in either 400Gbps at any of the other LINX locations, please contact us.

Each port order or port move has an installation charge.

    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.

    The LINX Cloud Connect services are initially available through connections with some of our partners. We have different options to deliver these services, based on the specific requirements of our members, either through direct ports or through hosted connections across our fabric.
