"We are deep into our transformation of Lumen and much of our core work involves simplification of our business," said Bob McCarthy, Lumen Senior Vice President, Business Development. "The sale of select Lumen CDN service contracts enables us to apply even more focus on disrupting the telecommunications industry by cloudifying our network, enhancing our Quantum Fiber offering and bringing amazing new solutions to market."

Lumen and Akamai will operate under a transition services agreement for 90 days, after which time Lumen plans to wind down its content delivery services. However, customers can immediately begin working with Akamai for all their CDN needs.
