Updated: Akamai Will Announce New P2P Offering On Nov. 6th

After my earlier post this morning asking if Akamai will announce their P2P offering next week, numerous Akamai customers wrote in to say that they have been invited to a special Akamai event on Nov. 6th for the launch of Akamai’s new P2P service offering. Customers who have been briefed on the P2P service already have said it will launch in November and be restricted to HTTP download only to start.

Biggest question I have is what the cost difference will be between Akamai’s traditional CDN service and the new P2P offering? Tomorrow, I am going to post what the current going rate is for P2P delivery.
