Host Europe PLC joins the London Internet Exchange

Host Europe, one of Europe's leading internet hosting providers to the SME market, is pleased to announce that it is now a full member of The London Internet Exchange (LINX), an alliance of Internet Service Providers enabling the exchange of internet traffic.
Membership of LINX will allow Host Europe to reap the benefits of greater interconnectivity with other members of the UK’s Internet infrastructure, which will result in a significant improvement in systems performance.
Interconnectivity is achieved via co-operative peering arrangements with other LINX members, and Host Europe has already agreed partnerships with several key industry players including Microsoft, NTL, Telewest Broadband and Yahoo! Europe, and negotiations with several other companies are continuing.
Tim Beresford, Chief Technology Officer, commented:
“Host Europe has always prided itself on providing excellent levels of service, and joining LINX gives us the ability to improve even further. As well as taking comfort in the knowledge that they are backed by a robust service level agreement and state-of-the-art technology in our data centres, our customers will enjoy faster access speeds as a result of our peering arrangements within LINX.
