As of January 1st 2013 our new bandwidth pricing scheme comes into effect.
Install fee: none
Recurring fee: Port fee £100+VAT per month for 2x GE ports to diverse switches, which includes £100 worth of bandwidth commit. This is equivalent to full transit of the largest of either 40Mbps 95%ile usage based, or a volume of 2000GiB of traffic.
Additional Bandwidth fees: Additional bandwidth commit is specified in terms of £/month, rather than Mbps or GiB per month. There is no minimum and no longterm commit required, just that changes to additional bandwidth amount need to be agreed to before the start of a month.
You don’t need to ask to switch between per GiB volume based billing and 95%ile usage based billing either, as every month we’ll calculate the whole of your bandwidth bill using each of the two methods, and then bill you based upon the cheapest one for you. Charging is based upon rounding down to the nearest £0.01.
If billed based on 95%ile usage pricing is:
£2.50+VAT/Mbps/month – full transit – arranged in advance
£3.00+VAT/Mbps/month – full transit – in arrears, excess traffic burst fee
If billed based on volume usage pricing:
£0.05+VAT/GiB/month – full transit – agreed in advance
£0.06+VAT/GiB/month – full transit – in arrears, excess burst traffic fee
Volume billing is based upon the larger of the in or the out traffic (not the sum of both).
Partial transit is also available at £0.40+VAT/Mbps/month, arranged in advance.
Our network is based on a 2GE ring around the three Jump Networks locations in Telehouse North, with two Cisco 48 port all-gigabit layer2 switches in each rack (2960G-48, or 2350), and two SUP720 based routers for layer3 routing, in different racks. We have gigabit ethernet connections to each of the two LINX LANs with an open peering policy, and take transit from NTT (AS2914) and KPN (AS286).
