Google to build giant data centre in UK?

October 21, 2020

By Chris Forrester

Business newspaper City A.M. reports that Google has acquired a 33-acre plot of land in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, just North of London.

The report says that Google will develop the site as a data centre, although plans are currently fluid, there’s really no other infrastructure scheme that would need so much land.

Google currently has 8 data centres outside the US, says Capacity Media, and five of these are in Ireland, Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, and Belgium.
