MTEL's Destineer Corp. demonstrates two-way messaging technology to financial analysts.

JACKSON, Miss.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 19, 1995--Destineer Corp., a subsidiary of Mobile Telecommunication Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:MTEL), today announced that it successfully conducted the first hands-on demonstration of its two-way wireless messaging products and services as part of an analyst meeting held earlier today at Mtel's Jackson headquarters.

Analysts were given a demonstration of the Destineer network, by which information can be instantly exchanged via two-way messaging units, eliminating the need to respond to messages by a phone call. Destineer customers will also be able to communicate with personal computers and fax machines.

Analysts were invited to operate Destineer technology for themselves. This spring, the two-way service will be provided to selected corporations for use in the Dallas metro area as part of a final "beta test."

"Mtel has always been first to market with the most innovative wireless messaging technologies," said Jai P. Bhagat, chairman and chief executive officer of Destineer Corp. and executive vice president of Mtel. "Today's demonstration is further evidence that no one in the industry has more experience and knowledge in building sophisticated, reliable wireless messaging systems than Mtel. With Destineer, we have set a new standard in wireless messaging, in response to the needs of our customers."

Destineer's nationwide narrowband personal communications services network is currently under construction in the United States. Destineer's goal is for the network to be operational in the top 300 U.S. markets in the second half of 1995. The two-way service is currently being field tested by Mtel employees in Dallas.

Mtel, headquartered in Jackson, Miss., is engaged in businesses which include nationwide paging and voice messaging services in the United States provided through nationwide SkyTel Corp.; international messaging services provided through Mtel International; and Destineer Corp. a provider of two-way wireless messaging services expected to be operational in the United States in the second half of 1995.
