Going global with the world’s fastest-growing video content delivery network

Better network, better performanceThe internet is expanding rapidly; global consumption of digital media is growing at unprecedented rates. In 2017, there were 3.8 billion internet users spanning every region of the world. That’s up 976.4 percent since 2000. At that rate, internet growth will outpace population growth. And the one dominant driver behind it all? Video.

Consumer demand for video is exploding. In 2021, 82 percent of all internet traffic will be video. As video continually drives internet growth, it’s important to find a video content delivery network (CDN) partner that can help you outpace internet video demands.
