    Apple is one of the few companies that has the chance of thinking first of all of how it plans to further expand. That’s because they are breaking records after records and sitting on a pile of cash. According to multiple reports from the industry, among which we cite Wall Street Journal’s as the most influential one, it seems that Apple is quietly building its own content delivery network, in order to boosts its Internet infrastructure and lay the groundwork for more traffic.

    An eventual content delivery network would be highly useful for Apple as its users are heavy data consumers and this trend has just started its ascension. Besides control over the distribution of its online content, Apple could possibly preparing for more traffic coming from its improved Apple TV device. We’ve previously shared an interesting report which was saying that Apple’s Apple TV could get new gaming features.

    Apple’s iCloud service stores and syncs emails, documents, photos, music and video and the company is delivering increasingly more content from its iTunes and App Store. At the moment, Apple uses Akamai and Level 3 to handle its distribution needs for iTunes, the App Store, and iCloud, but a content delivery network of its own would be easier to manage and probably more efficient, as well.

    As long as the prices are within reason it'll be great.
