We’ve just computed some averages for the following CDN:
Amazon Cloudfront (USA, Europe, Asia), Akamai (resold) and Rackspace Cloud Files

45 samples from Asia, Australia, USA, Europe show the following average download rates:

673 Rackspace CloudFiles
439 CF USA
433 Akamai
432 CF EU
391 CF Asia – (expected, most samples were NOT in Asia)

We will have many more samples to add next week
