The basic service taken by our members are the ports to connect to our switches. This allows each member to publicly peer with any other member by mutual agreement.

We offer multiple capacities between 100Mb and 100GigE. We also allow link aggregated 1GE and 10GE ports by arrangement.

Additional Service(s) Fees

Port Congestion
If the Average Measured Traffic (AMT) on any port exceeds 80% or more of the port capacity, this charge – equal to the standard monthly port fee – will be levied in addition to all other fees. The Average Measured Traffic for a port is calculated by dividing the number of bits passed through the port by the number of seconds in the measurement period (a month).Traffic in and out of the port (based only on intervals where measurement data is available and valid) is measured separately to produce two average values, and the AMT is the higher of these two averages, measured in Mbits/second or fractions thereof.
Support & Onsite
Members requiring engineering support and onsite attendance from LINX staff, in excess of that deemed reasonable, may be liable for this excess charge which will also apply to any member who fails to arrive onsite for a pre-arranged appointment. The charge is GBP £1000 per instance.
Late Payment
In accordance with clause 7.2 of LINX MoU, any member whose invoice remains unpaid after 60 (sixty) days from the invoice date, may be liable for this charge to cover handling and administrative costs incurred by LINX in the collection of outstanding monies. The charge is GBP £500 per instance.
Direct Debit Failure
In accordance with clause 7.3 of LINX MoU, any member who pays their fees using the LINX Direct Debit facility and whose payment is refused by their bank may be liable for this charge to cover handling and administrative costs incurred by LINX. The charge is GBP £10 per instance.
Fibre Services (non LINX PI)
Sourcing, provisioning, installation and maintenance of singlemode fibre between Member equipment in any facility including cross connects (if required) from fibre contractor’s ODF to Member equipment (if required). This Service is provided subject to LINX Fibre Terms of Service from time to time in force.

These fees are one off install charges and do not have a recurring charge. Please note that an annual recurring fee of £500 will come into effect for PI bundle orders placed from 1st July 2021. Any orders placed between 1st January 2021 and 30th June 2021 must order an initial patch prior to 1st July 2021 or be subject to the £500 annual recurring fee.

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 site for an unscheduled visit. To enable private peering between Telehouse North, Telehouse East and Telehouse West a cross connect is required between the LINX PI ODF in each site. 1 single mode fibre pair between Telehouse North, Telehouse East and Telehouse West:

  • Annual recurring charge: £2400

Please note that for new services ordered from 1st July 2021 the fees for Intersite connections from or to Telehouse North2 will come into line with the pricing for the other Telehouse buildings, meaning £1000 install fee and £2400 annual recurring fee. 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.

Service Fees

Additional Information

The LINX membership fee is GBP 300 per quarter. For new members this fee is pro-rated from the date of application endorsement to the end of the current quarter. For those US based members joining our NoVA LAN only, a membership fee of USD 500 per quarter applies.

Members can connect to the public exchange directly or via a third party on the ConneXions programme. Port fees are the same regardless of how a member connects, but the ConneXions programme allows a larger choice in port size. LINX will provide IPv4 and/or IPv6 addresses for each interface connected to the exchange.

An installation fee is chargeable for all new ports and/or port moves and includes cross connect at some LINX PoPs. Full details of our installation fees can be found here.

ConneXions
Using MPLS technology members are able to connect to all LINX LANs via VLANs. Many of our ConneXions partners will bundle ports with transport, and thus may not list the same rates as for direct connections to LINX LANs. However there is transparency with LINX pricing as all reseller customers are also LINX members. LINX acts as a third party to any agreement between the partner and their customer for services rendered by the partner such as transport and access to other exchange points There are no installation charges made by LINX for VLAN connections as this is a configuration on an existing reseller port.
Port Utilisation
To minimize the effect of congested ports for other peers (and their customers) across the exchange, a port congestion charge is applied if a port averages 80% or more of the port capacity during any one month. The charge is equal to the port price for that port and is levied in addition to all other Fees. Further detail on how this is calculated can be found in the section entitled ‘excess charges’ below.
Private Interconnect – Intrasite
Installation and maintenance of single-mode (9/125) fibre cables between LINX PI rack and the member rack within the same building, as indicated on the availability matrix. Patch leads not provided. The price for intrasite PI is listed as GBP1600 for Telehouse sites and GBP3000 in Sovereign house
Private Interconnect – Intersite
Installation and maintenance of connectivity between LINX PI ODFs on the Telehouse campus. All services require existing connection to Private Interconnect – Intrasite. Fibre – a pair of single-mode (9/125) fibre between LINX PI racks as indicated on the availability matrix carries an installation charge of GBP1000. An annual fee of GBP2400 also applies
Colocation Services
LINX maintains colocation space to house transmission equipment for members. Please contact sales for details of availability and pricing. Colocation Services are provided subject to LINX Colocation Terms of Service.
IXPReseller
Members are able to connect to LINX LON1 and LINX NoVA from partner Internet Exchanges. Our partners will bundle ports with transport, and thus may not list the same rates as for direct connections to LINX LANs
Route Server
LINX operates multilateral route servers on all LINX peering LANs. Use of this service is optional.
Routing Intelligence
Optional service which provides access to Renesys’ Routing Intelligence Interactive – part of the Renesys’ Routing Intelligence Services. This service enables LINX members, who agree to peer a full Internet routing table (IPv4) with Renesys, to monitor evolving routes to their networks in real time as seen from multiple vantage points in the Internet.
Statistics
LINX will provide members with access to statistics maintained by LINX on traffic levels through each switch port of the member.
Public Affairs Service
This service provides LINX members with regulatory awareness and analysis to help them comply with legal requirements. Acting in members’ best interests, it also provides a two-way route to law makers and officials for consultation

Members cancelling services and/or membership are obliged to give at least 30 days notice of such cancellation via the membership change form in the members area of the website. Any part of the notice period which has not been paid for will be invoiced up to the completion of the notice period. Where a member has paid for their membership fees, port fees and/or colocation or fibre fees in advance, any overpayment will be refunded based on the final cease date. Installation fees, whether for ports, Private Interconnect, colocation or fibre are non-refundable. Minimum contract terms, as negotiated on a member’s behalf with the fibre and/or colocation provider, shall apply to all third party services. The required notice period for LINX Services as defined in Clause 2 of LINX MoU does not apply in such cases.

Port Congestion
If the Average Measured Traffic (AMT) on any port exceeds 80% or more of the port capacity, this charge – equal to the standard monthly port fee – will be levied in addition to all other fees. The Average Measured Traffic for a port is calculated by dividing the number of bits passed through the port by the number of seconds in the measurement period (a month).Traffic in and out of the port (based only on intervals where measurement data is available and valid) is measured separately to produce two average values, and the AMT is the higher of these two averages, measured in Mbits/second or fractions thereof.
