2. General Discussion

  • Removing “MSA” from the standard in favor of “geographic service region” – APPROVED
  • “IXP application fee is $5,000 per market in which Applicant has an IXP to be certified. Geographic Service Region is defined as reasonably associated with a metropolitan or general service area. Each service area should have a separate application, but, in coordination with Open IX, payment by a single wire may be sent combining fees for all applications. Example: If you are applying for Certification for IXPs in the Washington, DC, London and Johannesburg areas the application fee would be $5,000 * 3 = $15,000.00”
