    Tons of things use akamai as mirroring around the world.
    Is this at home or work? What av do you have as some AV uses that.
    Any url strings?

    deploy.akamaitechnologies.com is used to cache a lot of authors updates.

    this is at work.

    for example, out of yesterdays top 10 sites by volume were:

    a125-56.205-112.deploy.akamaitechnologies.com
    a125-56.204-34.deploy.akamaitechnologies.com
    a125-56.205-131.deploy.akamaitechnologies.com
    a125-56.205-75.deploy.akamaitechnologies.com
    a125-56.204-128.deploy.akamaitechnologies.com
    a125-56.204-82.deploy.akamaitechnologies.com
    a125-56.204-114.deploy.akamaitechnologies.com

    We have sophos which is managed through the enterprise console, and windows updates are done through WSUS.

    If you can see which computers are accessing these sites, you'd probably find that they are your WSUS server and SOPHOS console caching updates.

    BBC iPlayer / News content - seem to use the akamai servers heavily.

    Apple iTunes uses Akami, as do Amazon and Adobe.

    Yep, it is any of the following (and probably quite a few more!) - Microsoft Update, AV updates (Symantec Endpoint's live update was featuring heavily for me), iPlayer. Basically, if you see it, dont worry to much about it
