Akamai’s Plan for a Wireless Data Fast Lane


No matter how quickly you dispatch data over the Internet, the last link is increasingly a wireless link to a customer’s smartphone or tablet. Those links are slower and sometimes congested. These days, while the average desktop Web page loads in two to three seconds, the average mobile Web page takes about eight seconds—sometimes causing shoppers to abandon transactions.

Now Akamai, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is working with several partners toward establishing a kind of “fast lane” on the radio waves that wireless relies on.
