AGREEMENT, made this 26th day of March, 1999, by and between George Conrades ("Executive") and Akamai Technologies, Inc. (the "Company").

WHEREAS, the Board of Directors of the Company (the "Board") has determined that it is in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders for the Company to agree to provide benefits under circumstances described below to the Executive in connection with his employment by the Company and due to his responsibility for the policy-making functions of the Company; and

WHEREAS, the Executive has entered into a Non-Competition Agreement under which he has agreed to not compete with the Company for the one-year period following the termination of his employment with the Company.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the mutual covenants contained herein, the parties hereto agree as follows:

1. If, within 24 months following a "Change of Control" (as defined in paragraph 2 below), Executive's employment with the Company terminates for any reason, either voluntary or involuntary, other than for death or total disability and other than for "Cause" (as defined in paragraph 3 below):

(c) the Company will promptly reimburse Executive for any and
