Internet Exchange Point


As a not-for-profit membership organisation we aim for long term income/expenditure neutrality, although it is necessary for us to ensure we have enough funds to meet the expansion requirements of the company and to meet any immediate needs that may arise.

All fees shown above EXCLUDE VAT at 20% (current UK rate). All services are subject to availability and at the discretion of the board.

All connections are available via singlemode fibre only, we do not support new copper connections.

Although there is no joining fee to become a member, you will be required to pay for the cost of cabling to connect from your location within one of our facilities to our point of presence. We will help you arrange this.

Organisations that would like to Peer on the Exchange but do not wish to become members of the company may do so, at the discretion of the LONAP Board, by entering into a commercial contract which a attracts a premium of 25% on top of the above fees.

** From February 2014, following successful trials, we are now able to offer 2 x 1G or 2 x 10G LAG using bidirectional optics (1000Base-BX10-U or equivalent 10G) Two ports can be connected using only one pair of single mode fibre, saving additional crossconnect cabling requirements, and offering an quick upgrade path for existing single mode fibre connections. Please contact us for advice on which optics/wavelengths to use.
