Fees

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.

Effective 1st April 2021.

† Partial speed ports are provided using inbound rate-limiting and outbound rate-shaping. Upgrades to the corresponding full port speed are available at any time.

All fees shown above EXCLUDE VAT at 20% (current UK rate) and are due on 30 day terms. All services are subject to availability and at the discretion of the board.

Connections

All connections are available via single-mode fibre only; we do not support new copper connections.

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

In most sites we are able to offer 2 x 1 GE or 2 x 10 GE LAGs using bidirectional optics (1000Base-BX10-U or equivalent 10 GE). Two ports can be connected using only one pair of single-mode fibre, saving additional crossconnect cabling requirements, and offering a quick upgrade path for existing single mode fibre connections. Please contact us for advice on which optics/wavelengths to use.

Membership

Membership is included with any directly connected port.

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 attracts a premium of 25% on top of the above fees.
