Content delivery is a race to zero – no matter how big a discount you got last week, someone else is probably finding a better, faster or cheaper solution. That’s us

CDN Optimization1RampRate has deep expertise in Content Delivery Network (CDN) and media technology. In fact, we consult with leading CDN providers, so we know their costs and are better equipped to advise you on which suppliers are the best fit.

Most every deal we renegotiate results in a 40% cost cut. Let’s face it.

If ecommerce and speed is most important or cheap is your need, we will get there effortlessly. Our founder help build and grow the space since before streaming was born.

But there’s good news:

The 800-pound gorilla’s grip on the premium end of the market is loosening – there’s a real competitive market no matter what type of content you have.
Whether your issues are with Akamai or migrating from Cloudfront, performance and DNS tools, we will help you.

RampRate will help you find the right answers.

RampRate‘s deep expertise in the Content Delivery Network (CDN) and media technology has contributed to the success of industry leaders in publishing, gaming and entertainment. RampRate not only works with end users but has consulted to more than a dozen CDN providers over the last several years. We know their costs and more important, what clients are best fit.

The way we see it, signed contracts are fluid, negotiable and changeable. We can compare your current contract or future needs with market norms for service-level agreements, terms, and prices. The dashboard and risk samples provided to you with our confidential no-cost CDN pricing benchmark arm you with the knowledge you need to manage your costs, risks, and performance.

Simply, we analyze 3 months of bills, your master services agreement, sla and will then propose a strategy for cost reduction and agility.

eBay“I knew I was leaving a bit on the table in our outsourced contracts. But the corporate mandate is growth and innovation, and when further contract improvement seemed to be marginal, my team’s first priorities had to move elsewhere. We can count on RampRate to be precise, timely and create millions in value.”

Dean Nelson, Vice President of Global Foundation Services, eBay


Accenture“I have had the pleasure of working with the crew at RampRate several times. Each time they have saved significant time in negotiating and closing contracts for data center space, telecom and managed services, which provided at least 20% savings over what we could have done alone and certainly cut processes in half. Tony and team are extremely knowledgeable in this space and always bring innovation and out-of-the-box thinking to the table.” 

Michael Montalto, Accenture
