which last mile?

One common misconception is that the last mile is the bottleneck.

I always have to ask, which last mile? The consumers have a last mile, but also the business hosting the servers have their own last mile. Some businesses cannot afford a terabyte per second connection, so they find someone like akamai to so that for them. It becomes cost effective if they don't need it for the 24/7.
