Akamai will peer with you anywhere and i doubt LLNW will give you trouble.
LLNW are restictive on peering.
L3, well, they run a superb network and even more superb pricing, so why
would they peer with anyone ;)
And as I use L3 for transit, they'd never peer with me. Not that they peer
with anyone outside the cabal anyway.
I still think, old fashioned me, that a CDN doesnt do go without peering
but some feel otherwise.
Quite so. I don't get why CDNs don't all peer openly. I guess most (i.e. those
which aren't Akamai) are more concerned with making money than with delivering
a good service to the end user.
