Content DELIVERY Networks
CDN’s drive down the cost of internet connectivity in the country by being closer to the consumer. By deploying their cache servers locally, consumers through their connectivity suppliers are able to access the content locally without breaking into the internet. This cuts out the cost of the expensive regional and submarine connectivity and therefore making the content cheaper and faster to access through low latency local connectivity.
