The (Brighton Digital Exchange) BDX is a business co-operative working to improve digital infrastructure and services in Brighton. Founded by seven technology companies, the BDX is a unique collaboration between Wired Sussex and technology businesses offering services to the Brighton business community.
The £700,000 project has been funded by BDUK (Broadband Delivery UK) as part of the Superconnected Cities programme.
Seven founder businesses including Internet service, hosting and telephony providers came together to form the Brighton Digital Exchange Co-operative, which will own and run the facility.
Adapting the New England House site and transforming it into a modern data centre facility for creative and digital businesses would provide the city with a digital platform to compete with other major technology clusters around the world.
