With effect from 1 January 2010, the LINX membership fee has been cut by 16.66% to only 1500 per year with 1GigE and 10GigE port fees reduced also. These changes to the LINX pricing structure ultimately mean that a member taking two 100M ports, one of which provided free by LINX, can connect to the exchange for as little as 9.37 per day.
LINX Chief Executive Officer, John Souter, said: “This is the second round of price cuts in the last six months following the 20% reduction in the membership fee and cuts in port prices back in July. Every member benefits from the changes without any alteration to their membership agreement. Offering membership for less than 10 per day gives LINX a lower entry level for networks seeking to peer at an international IXP.”
