Akamai CDN Bandwidth During World Cup

Akamai just released some interesting data on the World Cup. As most are aware, Akamai is streaming the World Cup matches, and publishing the streaming bandwidth numbers generated for each event. The bandwidth numbers are ridiculously high, with the Mexico vs Brazil peaking at 4.59Tbps. That’s an insane amount of bandwidth. I personally don’t think there is any other CDN that touch that number for a single event. Here are the rest of the figures for each of the matches, starting with highest bandwidth.
