[Inukshuk launches wireless braodband service in 20 centers across Canada based on pre-WiMAX standards.]

Montreal -- Inukshuk Wireless Inc. today announced the completion of the initial phase of its new wireless broadband network, with service available in 20 centres across Canada. Built in conjunction with Bell Canada and Rogers Communications, the Inukshuk network is one of the largest of its kind in the world.

This next generation IP wireless network based on pre-WiMAX standards enables portable megabit services, allowing subscribers to access the Internet and other applications such as voice over internet protocol (VoIP), video streaming and a variety of data applications. The total investment of the partnership between Bell and Rogers is expected to reach $200 million by 2008 covering over 100 urban and rural areas.

The initial phase of the network covers over 5 million households and 40% of the population and is now available in 20 areas across Canada including Greater Vancouver Area, Victoria, Red Deer, Calgary, Edmonton, Whitehorse, Greater Toronto Area, Barrie, London, Windsor, Kitchener-Waterloo, Hamilton, Ottawa, Gatineau-Hull, Quebec City, Greater Montreal Area, Charlottetown, Halifax, Fredericton, and St. John's.

The network leverages existing cellular towers of both Bell and Rogers, wirelessly connecting customers to the Internet and providing secure data transmission over licensed spectrum. The new technology is also being deployed in the United States and Mexico and Inukshuk expects Canadian users to have access to an extensive North American broadband footprint in the future.
