Simply Audiobooks' audio book download time drops from 100 minutes to 10 minutes using CDNetworks accelerated file download and robust Media Authentication service.

CDNetworks (KOSDAQ: 073710) a top-three global, full-service content delivery network (CDN), today announced that Simply Audiobooks has selected CDNetworks to provide 10 times acceleration in the fulfillment of book downloads for its e-commerce website. CDNetworks is providing accelerated file download and content delivery security with its robust Media Authentication service.

Simply Audiobooks, called "the Netflix of Audiobooks" by the Boston Globe, offers 20,000 unique titles in 30 categories for customers to buy, rent, or download online. CDNetworks' downloading service has dramatically improved the Simply Audiobooks end-user's downloading experience compared to its previous CDN service provider. CDNetworks-accelerated downloads are ten times faster, improving download throughput by a factor of 10. With a typical book file size of 75MB, the time for an end user at home to download a book has dropped from 100 minutes to under 10 minutes. In addition, the CDNetworks Media Authentication technology assigns access privileges that prevent unauthorized users from accessing the content.

"The key to providing great content is the speed at which you can deliver that content. Our members asked and we listened. We had a mission to deliver any audio book in under 10 minutes, and CDNetworks made this possible," said Vitaly Petritchkovitch, Director of Digital Technology of Simply Audiobooks. "CDNetworks' content delivery services have dramatically improved the downloading experience for our customers, which will translate into a significant impact on our bottom line revenue. We've seen a 12% decrease in subscriber churn, relating to download technical issues and speed, in the past couple of months, which I attribute to CDNetworks. In addition, CDNetworks' technology has allowed us to streamline our delivery from the publishers to the customers, so that we can get products to customers faster, which keeps us ahead of our competitors."

"Simply Audiobooks, the largest pure audio book company in the world and the second largest source for downloading audio books, is leveraging CDNetworks' leading-edge solutions to deliver both its commerce website and digital content downloading to online customers," said Simon Lee, CEO of CDNetworks US. "We are excited about working closely with Simply Audiobooks to help them ensure the highest possible quality end-user experience for its online customers."
