Limelight Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: LLNW),
a global leader in digital content delivery, today announced the opening
of three new Points-of-Presence (PoPs) in India. Located in Bombay,
Chennai and Delhi, the new PoPs continue Limelight's commitment to build
out infrastructure in India to support the country's rapidly increasing
online traffic and bandwidth needs.

"Movies, music and sports are the foundation of digital content for the
1.3 billion people of India. As infrastructure improves, it's essential
to provide the highest quality online experiences to stay competitive,"
said Dan Carney, Senior Vice President of Operations at Limelight
Networks. "To address this demand, Limelight will bring its full suite
of capabilities to the market, and we've already expanded capacity more
than six fold over the last 12 months. With the government's
focus coupled with investments in the private sector, we believe the
adoption curve will be steep and growth will be strong. We want to help
make dropped connections, download errors, buffering and pixilation a
thing of the past."

Many of the world's largest media, entertainment, software and gaming
companies already use Limelight to deliver their content in India. With
this added infrastructure, Limelight can fully support similar,
high-quality capabilities for domestic enterprises. The investment is a
natural extension of the company's broader focus on expanding in the
Asia Pacific region.

Limelight has increased its capacity more than 650 percent in India over
the last year. In May 2017, Limelight delivered 300 percent more traffic
in India compared to May of 2016. The new PoPs will allow Limelight to
better help more businesses deliver faster online experiences that meet
and exceed their customers' expectations.

Limelight's Orchestrate Platform is continuously expanding and
increasing in capacity to support the exponential growth of online
traffic and bandwidth needs. It delivers superior quality of experience
over any network connection and breakthrough performance even in
emerging regions. The unique combination of global private
infrastructure, advanced software, and expert services surpasses other
Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) to enable today's and tomorrow's
workflows and put audience experiences first.
