    Here's the link Bob was referring to: http://www.inetservices.com/cdn.html

    One of our larger customers went with Limelight Direct and had a good experience. They also had their site built here: http://www.lightmaker.com/

    CDN suggestion

    You might also want to give StreamGuys a try. I've been with them for several years now (they host my colo streaming server plus a couple of my websites), and their service has always been great.

    Their website is streamguys.com

    I think you could even do Amazon's S3; a poor man's CDN

    pantherexpress.com has been good to us for image caching. Free trial as well.

    Cachefly is pretty decent to start with. They are one of the only CDNs that I'm aware of that has list prices on the site and self-service sign up. From a performance standpoint, its not too shabby -- we've used Cachefly in the past.

    We currently use Akamai though but I would recommend it only if you have a more solid understanding of your traffic requirements and ROI.

    panthercdn is pretty darn cheap with no minimum commitments, they also seem to have very friendly people.

    Panther is a good option; Level3 has some pretty aggressive pricing as well.

    Please for the love of all that is holy - stop referring to Amazon S3 as a CDN. They are an Online Storage Provider and thats about the extent of it. Just because you serve up the media from two locations does not a CDN make. They use cogent almost exclusively - and offer very little in the way of value adds.

    Try CacheFly - inexpensive, quick, now serving from 12 POPs globally
