• WebNet Global EU, a subsidiary of WebNet Global, plans to build and operate a wireless mesh network throughout Europe.
• The wireless mesh network will be based on Hopling Technologies’ new Hopling Metro Topology and Hopling Technologies Managed Services program.

Almere, April 12, 2007 - Hopling Technologies, a fast growing technology leader in IP-based wireless networking equipment for enterprises, operators and service providers, announced today that WebNet Global EU, a subsidiary of WebNet Global Communications, has selected Almere to launch its European Converged Wireless Network for residential and business customers.

The European Converged Wireless Network implemented by WebNet Global EU, operated by the new European corporate offices in Almere, becomes generally available on Thursday, providing wireless mobility in the Almere city center and the marina. WebNet Global EU recognizes the enormous opportunity in Europe and has selected the Netherlands, the gateway to Europe, to launch its European mobility Network including VoIP - Residential and Business, local and long distance phone services.

The entire Network is deployed using Xnet Viper multi-radio nodes. Network management, provided by the Hopling Technologies Managed Services program, is hosted and managed from Hopling Services’ Network Operating Center in Almere, and authentication, billing, roaming and pricing services is managed from WebNet’s Network Operating Service Center in Vancouver, Canada.

“WebNet Global EU will also apply for a Mobile WiMAX license in the Netherlands,” said Jos van Poederooyen, President and Chief Executive Officer of WebNet Global EU. “By implementing Hopling Technologies’ WiMAX ready Xnet Viper series equipment we are constructing a sophisticated carrier-grade wireless mesh network, one that will be operational today and ready tomorrow when Mobile WiMAX becomes generally available.”

“Wireless mobility in residential homes and businesses is quite new in larger parts of the world,” said Gregory C. Carrington, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of WebNet Global. “There is an opportunity in virtually every city in the EU -- both large and small -- that we can capitalize on with Hopling Technologies’ HopWARE Mesh Architecture with its built-in cost-effective coverage capabilities. This will allow us to deploy mobile services rapidly and cost-efficiently in our planned operating areas. It will also let us quickly scale the wireless network as demand requires.”

“Hopling Technologies was chosen out of 30 potential suppliers because of the following features: scalability, mobility, throughput of broadband along with equipment reliability, multiple frequencies, customer and corporate satisfaction of existing deployments, supplier history, deliverability and pricing,” said Frank Koopman, Chief Executive Officer of Hopling Technologies. “By using Hopling Technologies state-of-art mesh nodes and associated Managed Services program we can offer WebNet Global EU a complete solution including network management for wireless voice, data and video applications.”
