Level 3, a big  data backbone company, has quickly built a Content Delivery Network (CDN) that is competing with the big players including Akamai and Limelight. 

These companies distribute large video and other rich media files around the globe through a network of giant servers  These networks are essential to the fast delivery of the streaming video.  It’s a big business and media companies and video sharing sites pay the toll for bandwidth.

Today, the Colorado company announced a significant discount.  Liz Gannes at GigaOM has the the story.

Earlier this year, I interviewed Level  3’s Lisa Guillaume. She talks about Level 3 and its strategy in the CDN space.  I have republished the clip today.
