KUALA LUMPUR, 25 May 2006 ¨C Green Packet Berhad, via its subsidiary Packet One Sdn Bhd, has made a significant breakthrough into the huge Middle East market with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Kalaam Telecommunications Bahrain B.S.C.(c) yesterday.

Under the MOU, Kalaam will utilize Packet One¡¯s technology for the deployment of wireless broadband last mile solution. It is on a revenue share basis whereby revenue arising from customers connected to the SONmetro network will be shared. The rights of utilization granted to Kalaam for the technology will be over a two-year period.

Specifically, the technology available to Kalaam shall be the SONmetro range of last mile access and connectivity solutions for fixed and mobile intelligent Wifi and Wimax wireless coverage.

Kalaam is a fully licensed telecommunications operator based in the Kingdom of Bahrain, offering advanced voice, internet, data, and value added services to residential and business customers while Packet One is a Global R&D company specialized in offering products and solutions that enable optimum usage of IP applications and services.

Kalaam intends to extend its use of the technology and operations to other countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council and will negotiate with Packet One once the deployment in Bahrain is successful.

¡°This MOU is an important milestone for Green Packet in successfully penetrating the Middle East market. This proves yet again the strong and capable management team in delivering results and the ready acceptance of our superior products,¡± said Green Packet¡¯s Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Puan Chan Cheong.

¡°Having established ourselves in South-East Asia and North Asia, the Middle East market has always been a part of our strategic initiatives and today we are proud that we are on track,¡± he added.

¡°We are excited about the opportunities in the Middle East. It has one of the highest ARPU¡¯s in the world, an overwhelming demand for broadband and bandwidth. The telecommunications market in that region is also experiencing deregulation and with this latest initiative we are well poised to scale further once that happens,¡± Puan said.

The SONmetro products enable the provision of wireless broadband connectivity at GSM type coverage with DSL/Cable data speeds and at a cost substantially lower than that of any other wireless solution. SONmetro is an intelligent relaying system, where the path and method of transmission are not predetermined, but adapted dynamically based on available opportunities.
