Demand for data is increasing exponentially, consuming increasing amounts of data.
Over 1 billion new internet users are expected over the next 5 years with someone in the developed world interacting with a data centre every 18 seconds by 2025.
If internet consumption and expenditure were a sector, its weight in GDP would be larger than the energy industry. It is expected that there will be a capital expenditure of £400bn annually to meet demand.

At faster speeds
Companies want to increase the speed of data transmission driven largely by consumer demand.
Amazon has claimed that every 100 milliseconds of latency reduces their sales by 1%.
Consumer demand for internet excellence highlights the critical role that digital infrastructure plays in facilitating the operations and success of many businesses.
100ms equals a 1% sales reduction
Reducing the digital divide
Digital inequality reinforces existing social inequality. The UN has identified internet connectivity as a key driver of economic development and mobility.
2.9 billion people are digitally excluded worldwide, with 6.9 million in the UK and 19 million in the United States.
Internet access accounted for 21% of GDP growth in mature economies over the past 5 years.
2.9 billion people still not connected to the internet
In a world fighting a climate crisis
Digital infrastructure is increasingly demanding higher use of finite natural resources.
This is particularly evident in data centres which are putting increasing strain on local and national electricity networks. Data centres also account for about 2% of total GHG emissions, the same as the aviation sector.
The opportunity to create sustainable digital infrastructure requires a unique and focused strategy.
