At CBN we work to advise national and local Government, urban and rural organisations on ways to develop their digital infrastructure to promote economic development and digital inclusion.

We emphasise the opportunity that comes from the development of what we call a truly transformational digital infrastructure or TDI; While “Gigabit” and “superfast broadband” are often seen as goals in their own right they are in truth inputs to a greater transformational agenda.

Too often there is an assumption that once superfast or ultrafast broadband is in place the economic and social benefits will naturally follow but without that wider agenda that sees the infrastructure as a foundation, there remains a risk that the next wave of innovation will be unfocused and may miss key economic and social goals.

That’s why we have helped develop new types of infrastructure initiative like the Brighton Digital Exchange, a carrier neutral PoP and data centre owned and run by a co-operative of ISPs and digital sector businesses.

CBN has many years’ experience of delivering other innovative projects that shape urban and rural areas through innovation.
