The London Internet Exchange (LINX) is one of the global leaders of Internet Exchange Points (IXP). Our company ethos and aspirations result in constant growth and improvement in our services. As a result, members have access to the most attractive peers at the lowest cost.
With over 570 members connecting from over 62 different countries worldwide, LINX members have access to direct routes from a large number of diverse international peering partners. Using LINX allows a reliable exchange of traffic with increased routing control and improved performance.
As a not-for-profit organisation, we focus on investing our service and membership fees into strengthening LINX network services. This ensures that our infrastructure is as up to date as possible and that we remain at the forefront of the IXP industry. By doing so, we can confidently provide our members with improved network performance, low latency and more control.
Not only do we believe it to be fundamental that LINX is able to provide a robust network with first-class engineering support, but also that the membership has confidence in our being able to represent them on matters of public policy. By doing so, we are not only working towards the good of our members, but the Internet as a whole. Doing this has led us to become an extremely well regarded organisation, with new members finding that once they have joined us they have improved their own recognition within the industry.
From feedback, we know that LINX members really value all of the support that is available to them, alongside the outstanding service we offer. Best effort at LINX means something completely different to most organisations, as a
not-for-profit mutual, we really do just have the members best interests at the heart of what we do. We remain committed to being a member focused organisation, now and in the future.
Joining LINX and exchanging traffic could not be easier. We have a simple sign up process with an annual membership fee of £1,200 for all members. There is an added charge for ports that is dependant on the size and number you choose to take. We are committed to ensuring that our service is and will remain price competitive against the cost of transit.
We contacted Parish Council Websites because we wanted to benefit from the experience they had in the development of websites for Parish Councils. They converted a prototype site in record time and ironed out some of the inconsistencies. We are delighted that we now have full control to update our website as and when necessary and that the process is so easy. Nothing has been too much trouble and we can honestly say that our expectations have been truly exceeded.
