The corrected release reads:


Partners Have Several Options to Extend Network and Market Reach

Nextlink Wireless, Inc., one of the nation's largest wireless spectrum holders offering services to the communications service provider, business, and government markets, today launched a new reseller program enabling partners to capitalize on broadband wireless as an alternative access option for their customers' "middle mile" and "last mile" network connectivity requirements.

The new reseller program is another element of Nextlink's strategy as a "carrier's carrier." The launch of this program today at the CompTel PLUS Fall 2006 Convention & Expo in Orlando follows the recent announcement that XO Communications has initiated sales of Nextlink's offerings in nine major markets across the U.S. Now an array of new partners can sign up to resell Nextlink broadband wireless services such as DS-3 and OC-3 broadband wireless access, as well as metro Ethernet at speeds up to 100 Megabits per second. These services are supported by sales and marketing support, training, and customer care from Nextlink.

To fully address the diverse needs of its partners, Nextlink provides two alternatives to resell broadband wireless services:

* Turnkey Plan. Under the Turnkey option, the reseller partner focuses on marketing, sales, and customer site acquisition. Nextlink takes care of everything else required to enable a customer to become operational, including: site set up (encompassing line-of-site and structural analyses, zoning and permitting, and civil work); hardware and installation; system test and acceptance; and ongoing monitoring, repair, and maintenance.

* Self-Serve Plan. With the Self-Serve option, Nextlink manages equipment sourcing, spectrum coordination, and engineering, while the reseller partner is responsible for all other sales, installation, and service-related activities.

"Nextlink's reseller program makes it simple for partners to immediately begin offering broadband wireless service as a high-quality, economical, and easy-to-deploy local access alternative," said Nextlink CEO Bob Beran. "Carriers of all types, as well as cable companies, ISPs and power companies, can extend their network and market reach using Nextlink broadband wireless services, eliminating the high cost and slow installation times typical of fiber optic deployments."
