llnw.net is Limelight Networks, a CDN.

In other words, harmless in and of themselves. They serve content for their
customers to users.

If you have a video or internet radio station playing, that'd do it. Or
downloads from many sites.

You could just put an entry in /etc/hosts mapping llnw.net to 127.0.0.1 or
something like that.
