The point is it probably would not be as accurate as one could hope because internet network infrastructure is network-centric and not necessarily region-based. Of course you could try to fully map INET like CAIDA does and keep the info updated on "daily basis", pretty hard work though... You miss the point; what they have done is decouple the requirement for correlation to a geographical location in optimizing content delivery; the only thing they seem to care about is logical topographical location.
I did not "miss the point". I just pointed that such data would not be same as geographic location. That akamai does not need geo data specifcally for their application setup is another matter entirely. -- William Leibzon Elan Networks [email protected]
