Business Editors/High-Tech Writers

RALEIGH, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 22, 2003

North Carolina's Leading Fixed Wireless Broadband

Provider is Breaking the Last Mile Bottleneck Throughout

the Research Triangle Region

WindChannel Communications, providers of ultra-high speed fixed wireless Internet connectivity and data transfer services, today announced its downtown Durham, N.C. access points are now 'Hot' and organizations like the Environmental Protection Agency are enjoying cost-effective Internet connectivity that is flexible, fast and secure.

The EPA has more than 1,200 employees working at its 133-acre campus in the heart of the Research Triangle Park. The use of cutting-edge technology like fixed wireless broadband is nothing new to the EPA's state-of-the-art facility. The main roadway into the campus is lined by streetlights topped with solar panels.

WindChannel has been serving the Raleigh, N.C. market since February and is quickly capitalizing on opportunities to build wireless broadband networks throughout the state. The company takes advantage of next generation fixed wireless broadband technology to deliver bandwidth at lower costs with enhanced reliability and security, faster provisioning and world class customer care.

"We are well positioned to solve the last-mile connectivity problem due to our wireless carrier-class, Internet access network," said Randy Choplin, president and chief executive officer for WindChannel. "Not being tethered to wires and their associated expense enables us to provide Internet access and other data transfer services without the usual delays or high costs of traditional wired providers."

Last-mile connectivity refers to the link between a building and the public networks that provide critical broadband services to businesses and residential consumers. This link is the principle bottleneck that prevents many companies from utilizing cost-effective, high-speed Internet access. The cost to build and maintain last mile connectivity is expensive with traditional broadband Internet access providers often paying more than $1 million a route mile for their networks.
