BEIJING, Nov. 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ChinaCache International Holdings
Ltd. ("ChinaCache" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:CCIH), the leading total
solutions provider of Internet content and application delivery services in
China, reported China's Internet performance in the third quarter of 2013.
China's Internet connection speeds increased 20% in the third quarter of 2013
to 3.97 Mb/s, from 3.3 Mb/s in the second quarter. More significantly, over
74% of China's Internet population reported average speeds between 3Mb/s to
4Mb/s – allowing users to quickly download and stream large files, such as
movies and videos.

With an average connection speed of 6.17Mb/s, Shanghai remained the province
with the fastest access, and the only province with average connection speeds
above 6Mb/s. In the third quarter, six provinces achieved average connection
speeds above 4Mb/s: Beijing (4.92Mb/s), Jiangsu (4.25Mb/s), Fujian (4.21Mb/s),
Shandong (4.20Mb/s), Zhejiang (4.16Mb/s) and Heilongjiang (4.07Mb/s), making
this the first time that Shanghai was not the only province with an average
connection speed above 4Mb/s.

Among China's three major carriers, China Telecom remained the fastest in the
third quarter of 2013, at 4.06 Mb/s, followed by China Unicom's 3.87 Mb/s and
China Mobile's 3.77 Mb/s. China Mobile greatly narrowed its speed gap against
its peers and achieved the highest increase in average speeds, up 35% from the
prior quarter. China Telecom and China Unicom also preformed strongly in the
third quarter, with each delivering double digit increases.

Windows XP is still the dominant operating system used in China with an
installation base of 70% of the country's Internet population. Windows 7 is in
the second place with 28% of the Internet population installing it on their
computer, and Windows 8, which is relatively new to the market, has 1.4%
market share. As for non-Windows operating systems, only Mac OS X makes the
ranking, accounting for 0.5% of users.
