IP address 72.21.91.19 wants to connect to my Mac

I use Little Snitch. One day, the ip address 72.21.91.19 wanted to connect to my Mac. It seems to be from Edgecast Networks, a CDN. I asked my isp tech support and they don't use this content delivery network. Any idea why this ip address would be wanting to connect if my isp doesn't use them?

TCP port 80 (http)

What data are you referring to? Like tracking which websites are visited? Or data on my computer?
