Speaking about this milestone, Sudhir Kunder, Country Director-India at DE-CIX India, says, “Gone are the days when a country’s steel consumption determined its growth. 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 connected 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 reflects 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.”
