“Edgio allows us to deliver a consistently high-quality viewing experience for our customers at a cost that is very competitive. Our users are accustomed to large-screen television viewing and increasingly expect that same level of quality in a mobile or desktop environment, which is more difficult to achieve. Edgio optimized our content delivery and we are already seeing positive results from our viewer feedback.”

The team at Future Today selected Edgio’s CDN Chunked VOD Caching and Delivery, Cloud Storage and Intelligent Ingest to improve performance and reduce costs. They immediately saw improvements in their top metric, improving cache hit efficiency. As Future Today eyes expansion to markets in Brazil, Canada and Mexico, the OTT provider has Edgio’s scalable global infrastructure and support team available to support their growth.
