INNFAX SERVICE TO BECOME AVAILABLE AT ALL HYATT HOTELS ALPHANET TELECOM ANNOUNCES 5,000 ROOM HYATT HOTELS AGREEMENT

 SAN MARCOS, Calif., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- AlphaNet Telecom Inc. today announced that it has reached an agreement with Hyatt Hotels Corporation whereby its InnFax(R) in-room facsimile service will be installed in approximately 5,000 additional Hyatt hotel rooms. InnFax(R) service is already available in over 1,000 rooms in Hyatt hotels and, when these additional installations are completed, the service will be available to the guests of virtually all Hyatt hotels in the United States and Canada. In addition, the service is also available in the Grand Hyatt, Hong Kong. AlphaNet and its worldwide licensees anticipate service availability in additional international hotels during the next twelve months.
 InnFax(R) service is the only in-room facsimile service that provides the businesses traveler with a confidential, convenient and reliable means of sending and receiving fax messages from the privacy of their hotel room. Each guest has instant access to an in-room fax machine, 24 hours a day, and can send faxes to and receive faxes from any fax machine in the world. Each guest is automatically assigned a unique private fax number for the duration of their stay. This number is automatically disabled when the guest checks out. The next guest in the room is assigned a new and different fax number, ensuring that they do not receive faxes intended for the previous guest.
 With InnFax(R) service, business travelers can provide their correspondents with a private fax phone number. This in-room service completely eliminates the usual delays due to hand delivery, busy front desk machines, closed business centers or over burdened hotel staff. Additionally, check out can be faster and more convenient as hotel guests can now receive, directly in their room, a printed and up-to-date copy of their hotel bill on their InnFax(R) machine. Business travelers can also receive printed output from a range of information services and can use the InnFax(R) machine as a photocopier and make printed copies of information contained in their portable personal computer.
 InnFax(R) service, which was commercially launched in late 1992, makes in-room fax service practical and affordable. AlphaNet's patented technology does not require the hotel to make any capital modifications to its telephone system, or install additional wiring or dedicated telephone lines to the rooms.
 AlphaNet, based in Toronto, Canada and San Marcos, California, is engaged in the design, development and worldwide marketing of a range of facsimile and messaging services for the business traveler. Internationally, AlphaNet has licensed service providers in Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan. The company has recently filed a preliminary prospectus in several provinces of Canada to qualify an initial public offering of its common shares.
