I think for such an approach we'd be happy to provide a wavelength that
akamai could attach 10gbps or 40gbps SFP's to our CWDM kit to push it to
our datacentre, APE could sponsor a 10 or 40gbps port and somehow we
collectively provide transit internationally or perhaps the DNC/NZRS
One thing I have noticed is that akamai is available via APE (Vocus
hop), the only problem is because we are with vocus the return path is
via our transit link. I assume that if the akamai boxes hosted off the
APE had no transit provided, they may use vocus APE link to fetch the
content. Again talks would need to be had with Vocus to ensure they were
happy with this so it doesnt just break.

is proposed to be provider independent, is that not the case?
My understanding is that Akamai push some stuff, and some stuff is
pulled on demand. Does that answer your question?
