IX Liverpool (aka The Liverpool Internet Exchange) helps make the Internet faster, more accessible and more available within the Liverpool Community Region. It has been built solely on donations from the community so far, owned by its members and operates as a not for profit company with open free to attend board meetings. We believe that low cost high quality and high speed Internet access is a must for our region and since our incorporate in 2016, we have been busy building the Internet here in the region.
So far we’ve survived thank to very generous donations from the community and many people have given up their weekends and evenings to help us physically build the fabric of the exchange, but we still need funding to help support our day to day operational costs.
IX Liverpool has created an Associate membership for citizens and businesses in our community who want to help us. We have a target to raise £5000 a month of incoming revenue by the end of 2018 so we can support the ongoing costs of running the Internet Exchange.
Based on both regular members and associate members fees and various other services we provide, we are hoping to achieve the £5k a month figure but we need your help to do it. Starting from just £10 a month, you can help make a difference to the exchange and help us achieve our target.
By becoming an Associate Member, you will receive the following benefits:
- A Membership certificate to place on a wall, confirming your membership to the exchange
Option to be listed on our website as an Associate Member, along with the donated amount
Invitation to member only events, such as our data centre openings or major events
