    The power usage effectiveness (PUE) of the centre is currently 1.8 but is expected to go down to 1.7. Pacnet said it was unlikely to go down further because the datacentre was built in an existing building.

    Barney said the facility would be purely carrier neutral, with all operators working in the facility.
