Port Fees

SwissIX has currently no recurring fees for the first 100 Mbps and 1 Gbps port, only a small yearly membership or participation fee. 10 Gbps ports have a port fee of 900 CHF/month; 100 Gbps ports come at 4000 CHF/month. Our sponsors made this possible along with the volunteer work of our board members and several others too. Thank you!


Our pricing in detail:

  • first 100 Mbps/1 Gbps port is free
  • first 10 Gbps port is CHF 900 MRC
  • any additional 100 Mbps/1 Gbps/10 Gbps port comes at CHF 450 MRC
  • 100 Gbps ports are CHF 4000 MRC


Special:

If you are a 100 Mbps/1 Gbps peer looking for redundancy you may get a second 100 Mbps/1 Gbps port for free, if both ports connect in different locations (you get 2 IPs, one for each location) and your aggregated usage does not exceed 80% of your smallest connection.


If you would like to connect via FastEthernet (Cat-5) or single-mode fibre, please follow the get-connected procedure. The deployment usually takes 1 to 2 working weeks.
