The IX Australia network enjoys continued growth with the launch of a new POP at Over the Wire’s flagship facility at 100 Wickham in Queensland. QLD-IX is part of the IX-Australia network operated by the Western Australian Internet Association (Inc).
"Extending our reach to Over the Wire’s datacenter at 100 Wickham provides increased peering options for our members,” said IX-Australia Technical Manager, Joe Wooller. “WAIA appreciates the efforts of Over the Wire for assisting with this expansion.”
Following IX Australia’s move to price parity across all IXs back in July, a further price reduction is being issued across the network with 10GigE peering reducing from $550 (exc GST) per month to $450 (exc GST per month).
As a member driven not-for-profit association, WAIA makes it a priority to ensure our members are delivered a range of services at the best price possible.
WAIA continues to provide new services for members. WAIA is pleased to announce that Colo is available for members within Storeroom 2 at QV1.
Members can take 4RU of space with 1 amp power at a cost of $250 exc GST per month. Available now, limited to one place per member on a first come basis. Additional space can be taken from from 1 January 2014
