ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (STT GDC) has expanded into Thailand and will be building a state-of-the-art data centre in Bangkok city with TICON, a leading local developer and total solutions provider of industrial properties.

With the expansion, STT GDC's network of data centres has grown to over 60 in China, India, Singapore, Thailand (pending completion) and the United Kingdom.
