On October 10, 2023, Lumen took a significant turn by announcing the discontinuation of their CDN services.
For loyal Lumen clientele, this signals a transition. But which path to choose?
Enter Airflow Multi CDN by Jet-Stream, a customised, reliable solution worth your attention.
Lumen, a trusted name in the content delivery network services industry, is undergoing a transformation that might impact your business. They have announced the winding down of their esteemed Lumen CDN services, with Akamai Technologies stepping in to take over select CDN service contracts. This means mandatory migrations for many Lumen customers.
If you’re a Lumen customer, you might be wondering about your next step. The first choice that comes to mind is migrating horizontally to Akamai, who will take over select CDN customer contracts.
Akamai is of course also a reliable service provider for CDN services. But, before you decide, consider this – why migrate to a solution that may not be the best fit for your unique needs? And what to do if your contract is not taken over by Akamai?
