  1. director of stunt says:

    I also see them behind Cotendo, which is behind Bandcon.

    What does AT&T do when they attempt to sell their CDN product (ICDS) to a customer and someone highlights this? How do they even respond to this?

  2. Want to bet that AT&T website people don’t even know they have a CDN offer that competes with Akamai? Those guys, probably consultants from an external company, just went to the usual suspects to fix a problem. Like they always say, no one ever got fired for buying Akamai. (except maybe this time)
