NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 1, 1998--Bell Technology Group Ltd. (Nasdaq Small Cap:BELT, BELTW) (BSE:BTG, BTGW) is changing its name to Globix Corporation. (The new symbols are (Nasdaq Small Cap: GBIX, GBIXW)(BSE:GXC, GXCW). Company President and CEO, Marc H. Bell said recently, "As our business evolves and becomes more global in nature, we are taking the opportunity to change our name to one that more accurately reflects our planned global presence". Mr. Bell emphasized that this is a change of name only. "Our people and the services we offer remain the same. We are, and will continue to be, a leading provider of Internet service for New York businesses. As our name changes to Globix, we have plans to make the company more global in nature.
