airBand Communications Inc.
June 14, 2006

New base station expands wireless network coverage to nearly 2,000 additional businesses

DALLAS -- airBand Communications Inc., the largest fixed wireless company for business customers in the United States, today announced that it has expanded its wireless network in the greater Phoenix area with an 11th base station that is deploying pre-WiMAX equipment. The base station, located in the West Valley, provides coverage to approximately 2,000 businesses within a four- to five-mile radius.

airBand is deploying pre-WiMAX technology throughout its network to provide Phoenix businesses with greater broadband capacity and higher quality of service for Voice over IP, video, disaster recovery, VPN and remote server applications. Because airBand’s fixed wireless network bypasses the local telecom company, customers benefit from scalable bandwidth solutions, quick installations and higher levels of customer service. airBand customers can upgrade bandwidth in hours and get services installed in a matter of days. In addition, airBand offers an unmatched level of reliability backed by its Service Level Agreement (SLA) that provides a 100-percent uptime guarantee.

“Our deployment of pre-WiMAX technology demonstrates airBand’s ongoing commitment to ensuring maximum uptime, expanding the broadband solutions we can deliver, and increasing the number of customers we can reach with our wireless network,” said Joseph F. Sikora, airBand’s executive vice president of sales. “West Valley businesses now have a better choice when it comes to broadband solutions, and with airBand, they can partner with a company that provides rapid installations, scalable bandwidth, and a commitment to customer care that is second to none.”

airBand has successfully operated in Phoenix for more than five years serving companies such as Mountain Park Health Center, a non-profit operator of four medical clinics in the Phoenix area.

“Our business relies heavily on fast broadband connections that are always available and we have been extremely satisfied with the service we have received across our four locations,” said Mountain Park Health Center CFO Kim Collins. “We also place tremendous value on the unique redundancy airBand delivers because its network provides us with a truly diverse path that is far more flexible than traditional wired infrastructure.”
