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.
