Thread: akamai.net using 3gb per day bandwidth?

  1. #1

    Default akamai.net using 3gb per day bandwidth?

    I was looking at app usage and by far the highest usage app is called "akamai.net" and its using an average of 2.99gb per day! I can't find any app by this name on the system. Googling it says is a p2p download network. I also found its installed by programs like adobe flash etc.. So this app is using my bandwidth to p2p downloads to other peoples computers. Is there any way to uninstall this? Why should I be paying with bandwidth for this? I can't even find what installed app is causing this.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Steam uses Akamai's Content Delivery Network for storing screenshots and icons uploaded by users.

    Trend Micro and a few other Anti-Virus products use Akamai.

    AMD, HP, and Red Hat use Akamai.

    Facebook uses Akamai.

    IT Vendors use Akamai to provide network security feeds (eg: Emerging Threats).

    BTW: That just barely dents the surface.
