Sky CDN


[link to this post]
 
While streaming iPlayer on my Sky connection I noticed that it is not coming from the usual .. Akamai or Highwinds CDN's. It is actually streaming from a Sky IP address: 2.127.242.93 / host93-rangeB-level3-global.cdn.hobir.isp.sky.com. So I guess that Sky are running their own CDN now? Which would be good as Akamai performance is poor in the evenings, seen it drop to a few hundred kbps! Thing is even from Sky's own servers but it is not buffer free!

Anyone else having streaming problems on Sky?

Something very odd is happening.

That looks like a Level3 cache hosted at Sky's Birmingham datacentre. iPlayer has been using Level3's CDN for a while.

Sky Broadband customers watching BT Sport also stream from IP addresses registered to Sky.
