By Stephen Brown | | 0
CDN providers are experiencing phenomenal rates of growth at the moment. As more and more companies look to boost their online presence with a raft of high performance content delivery network technologies, CDN providers have been facing increasing competition, with more and more providers looking to take advantage of this highly competitive industry.
The biggest beneficiaries of this rush to boost website performance with technologies such as static and dynamic content delivery and load balancing products are CDN providers such as Akamai, CDNetworks and Limelight, who have seen their number of big name clients swell over the past few years.

Now, Limelight has announced another new customer that is leveraging their content delivery network. That client is StreamSpot, a 100% automated live and on-demand streaming provider serving churches, synagogues and live events.
