Internet Infrastructure Capex Set to Climb?

According to tech research firm PacificCrest, the global technology buildout is a $200 billion opportunity over the next five years.

The infrastructure needs include $100 billion to relieve congestion and $50 billion for boosting networks by upgrading Internet protocols. PacificCrest also estimates $54 billion is needed for new routing systems to improve data flow.

During the last cycle (2004-2008) the top five Internet firms spent roughly $15 billion on infrastructure, but that figure is expected to jump to $28 billion over the next four years.
