IONICA AND NORTHERN TELECOM EUROPE TO CO-OPERATE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF FIXED RADIO ACCESS TECHNOLOGY

 LONDON, May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Northern Telecom Europe and Ionica have signed an agreement to develop and produce the residential and radio base station equipment which will be the key elements of Ionica's national telephone network. The opportunity is estimated to be worth more than $150 million over the next few years as Ionica expands into the United Kingdom market.
 Ionica was awarded a Public Telephone Operator's (PTO) license by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in February 1993 to become the third national PTO in the United Kingdom licensed to provide fixed telephone services. The Ionica system uses a wireless link to provide the final drop from Ionica's exchange to the home or business, thus completely avoiding the costs associated with installing cables. The system will offer customers a quality service at significantly reduced prices.
 There is also already considerable international interest in the Ionica system and Telecom Finland was the next PTO to announce, on April 14, 1993, that it will adopt the Ionica technology.
