By doing so, we can confidently provide our members with improved network performance, low latency and more control. Working for the Good of the Internet 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 for the benefit of our members, but also for the Good of 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. Multiple ways to connect LINX offers a range of products and services that make connection to the exchange as simple as possible. As a result a cost-effective membership solution for all networks, whatever their size, is likely to be available.
