Akamai Confirms They Are Delivering Apple’s Live Stream

I've just spoke to someone at Akamai who has confirmed that they are delivering today's live stream of Steve Jobs's keynote. While there was a lot of talk about Apple delivering this event from their new data center in North Carolina, that's not happening, not yet at least. Apple will be bringing a lot of their content delivery in-house, but that won't happen overnight.

Update: The quality of the live stream has been pretty good, but towards the last 15 minutes of the event, my stream had a lot of stuttering for close to ten minutes. There were also a few instances where the stream skipped back a few seconds and repeated what had just been shown.
