Akamai Visualise Internet Traffic

Akamai carries up to 30% of the web’s traffic so when they start talking about data they’re not only dealing in big numbers, but also significant percentages of the internet’s users.

They’ve made public a lot of their data and they’ve done so in a pretty visual and engaging fashion.
