Monetization of non-core product lines, such as CDN contracts, allows Lumen to focus on strategic priorities

DENVER, Oct. 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Lumen Technologies (NYSE: LUMN) today announced the company has completed the sale of select Content Delivery Network (CDN) service contracts, to Akamai Technologies, Inc.

"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."
