Paves The Way For Deployment Of Wireless Broadband Services

Kuala Lumpur, 8 December 2006 C Green Packet Berhad (Green Packet) has announced that it has completed the acquisition of 55% of the equity interest in MIB Comm Sdn Bhd via its subsidiary, Packet One International Sdn Bhd.

This will pave the way for Green Packet to rollout its SONmetro solution and also the deployment of wireless broadband services in the country. MIB Comm Sdn Bhd shall be renamed Packet One (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (Packet One (M)).

Currently, Packet One (M) holds licenses for a valid class Application Service Provider (ASP), Individual Network Service Provider (NSP) and Individual Network Facilities Provider (NFP) (MCMC Licenses). These three licenses are issued by the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC).

"These MCMC Licenses will enable Green Packet to deploy the SONmetro wireless broadband infrastructure and also, to proliferate the rollout of the SONmetro solution and provision of wireless broadband services, said CC Puan, Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Green Packet.

Green Packet intends to use Packet One (M) as the vehicle for the deployment of its SONmetro solution which is targeted to be made available to the Malaysian public. As such, we will provide the necessary technological know-how and support to Packet One (M) for the deployment, he added.

According to Puan, the deployment of SONmetro will be launched via the unlicensed spectrum. If we are able to obtain a regulated spectrum, we will be able to offer additional services to the public.

Packet One (M) will be positioned as an owner and operator of an alternative last mile wireless broadband network to empower various Virtual Network Operators (VNO) to resell the broadband services. Packet One (M)s network will be wholesaled out to VNOs which will front marketing, customer acquisition and retention of end users. This will create a value chain and sharing of resources to enable numerous players to tap into the market of the broadband arena.

This rollout will be funded using part of the RM181.35 million of proceeds raised from the recently completed private placement exercise involving the issuance of approximately 40.3 million shares at an issue price of RM4.50 per share.
