CDN is really a channel opportunity. CDN is a content delivery solution for media companies. Level3, Akamai and Limelight are slugging it out with VZ for that business.
Two things made a lightbulb go off in my head. One Highwinds bought Bandcon last year. Calling Bandcon a CDN player is funny because the branding was about cheap bandwidth reseller like its peers (who have all since gone away too).
The other was that Highwinds is now offering all the services that Level3 and others offer: collocation, network and IP. So its bring in revenue time for Highwinds - any revenue cuz our VC's are hungry.
