Los Angeles, CA – May 16, 2017 – C3 Networks, a cross-border managed IT solutions provider, wishes to clarify any misconceptions that may exist in the market regarding its relationship with ChinaCache, a global content delivery network provider.

Since its inception, C3 Networks Inc. (“C3 Networks”) has been an entirely separate entity from ChinaCache International Holdings Ltd. and its subsidiaries and affiliates, including ChinaCache North America, Inc. (collectively referred to as “ChinaCache”).  There has never been, at any point in time, any ownership, partnership, franchise, joint venture, spinoff, successor, affiliate, employer-employee or agency relationship between C3 Networks and ChinaCache.  Therefore, Neither C3 Networks nor ChinaCache shall make any statement, representation or commitment of any kind on behalf of each other.

To the extent that C3 Networks may provide data center or other services on behalf of or to ChinaCache in the future, or ChinaCache may provide such services on behalf of or to C3 Networks, they do so as part of an arm’s length transaction in the ordinary course of business and only with the other party’s written confirmation or authorization.

So it naturally follows that the cost of deployment would be lower as well. However, this is not true. When compared to the United States, hosting costs in IP transit, space, and power cost more in China.    Continue…
