Mixaria, como postou Dan Rayburn comparando o faturamento das maiores CDNs com a receita anual da Comcast de ~US$ 70 bilhões.

CDN (Content Delivery Network) revenue is projected at $3.36 billion in 2014, up 19 per cent, directed by user appetite for self-selected content, further accelerating linear broadcast, media and entertainment’s transition into virtual paradigms, according to AccuStream Research.

Across the gamut of global operations, double-digit growth through 2017 is animated by: 1) Bandwidth pricing stability expanding topline while lowering COGS; 2) Marginal performance paybacks; 3) Value added services addressing tech complexities accounts requiring quality, reach and security at scale deciphering media formats, device fragmentation and monetisation tools that improve MRR; and 4) Virtual video (including “live” steaming, VoD, TV Everywhere deployment and the enterprise) is a consumption dynamo.

Total 2013 commercial value of media and entertainment video (views and advertising), movie/TV files, music listening and downloads (including self-hosting entities such as Google and Amazon) stood at $3.35 billion, of which $1.05 billion (31.3 per cent) was delivered through CDN contracts.

Video viewing and advertising (combining self-hosted networks), TV/movies and music accounted for 2.4+ billion gigabytes of data transfer, worth $1.6 billion in commercial market value (bandwidth and co-lo fees only), when priced at prevailing rates and against a volume (gigabytes delivered) model.
