It has been data and internet consumption for quite some time now. The internet is not simply sustaining existing technology; it is giving birth to new innovations. The more networks connect directly, the lower the latency, the better the resilience, and the better the performance of digital platforms and applications—creating more room for innovation. This expansion and success reflect the innovative nation that we are, and it is not going to stop anytime soon. DE-CIX’s role in interconnecting networks is helping to accelerate the country’s Internet growth and, ultimately, the global success of India’s digital economy.”
