Alphabet Inc’s Google has bought a plot in Yunlin County to build a data center, local media reports said yesterday, without citing sources.

Google has two data centers in Taiwan — one in Changhua County and the other in Tainan.

In Asia, the search giant also operates a data center in Singapore and one in Mumbai, India.

Earlier yesterday, the Chinese-language Economic Daily News cited unnamed county officials as saying that Google had bought a NT$3.64 billion (US$123.33 million) plot at the Yunlin Technology-based Industrial Park (雲林科技工業區).
