London, UK - 21st November 2018 - LINX, the London Internet Exchange, have committed to significantly reducing 10GE and 100GE port fees on its LON1 and LON2 networks in London, and at its regional exchange LINX NoVA in Northern Virginia, USA. This was ratified by a vote by LINX members at an Extraordinary General Meeting in London on the 20th November.
As of 1st January 2019 prices on selected port sizes will be cut by 15%. On LON1 10GE fees will drop to £638 per month with 100GE ports priced at only £3596 over the same period. Meanwhile, the recently upgraded LON2 platform has new monthly fees of £360 for 10GE and £2277 for the 100GE port option.
Also taking effect in January is the end of promotional traffic based billing at LINX NoVA. The 15% cut will price 10GE ports at NoVA at an attractive US$425 while 100GE will be as little as US$2720.
LINX CEO, John Souter, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer these price reductions for our members. It continues our long-standing policy of driving down costs which has seen fees reduced year-on-year for more than a decade. There's never been a better time to connect to LINX.”
Pricing at LINX's UK regional exchanges LINX Manchester, LINX Scotland and LINX Cardiff all remain unchanged for 2019. However, these still include the free 1GE port connection that comes as part of the annual £1200 membership fee.
