Out of curiosity, how many SPs out there have local Akamai servers on
their network? I inquired about it last Fall and our average bandwidth
to Akamai wasn't enough at the time to warrant placing hardware on our
site, from their perspective anyway. The bandwidth though accounted for
roughly 1/10th of our overall bandwidth. I wonder what it would be
today. Our Internet bandwidth is just over 4x what it was last Fall.
