Network Map

Akamai has more than 1000 POPs, located all over the world including continents like South-America, Africa and Middle-East. Because of the massive number of POPs, we feel it makes no sense to present a network map of the Akamai CDN.

Pricing & Contract duration

Akamai does not publish pricing information on their website. They want to work with every customer to create a custom contract that meets the customer's needs.
