HAMILTON, Bermuda -- Bermuda Digital Communications Ltd. (BDC), the leading wireless telecommunications operator on the island, today announced that it has selected equipment from Lucent Technologies (NYSE: LU) to deploy an enhanced third-generation (3G) mobile data network based on CDMA2000 1xEV-DO technology. The network will be used to provide services at speeds that rival the fastest wireline connections to BDC customers. Commnet Supply, a Lucent Business Partner, signed a contract with BDC to deliver, install and maintain the Lucent solutions.

As part of the agreement, BDC will upgrade its existing Lucent Flexent(R) CDMA2000 base stations with hardware and software for the high-speed, wide-area, secure wireless data network. 1xEV-DO allows for high-quality video streaming, high-speed data transmission and downloading of heavy files, videoconferencing, Internet and intranet access, and many other new applications with the added convenience of total mobility.

"We are excited to continue our partnership with Lucent and Commnet Supply to deliver the highest quality mobile voice and high-speed data services to our customers," said Kurt Eve, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Bermuda Digital Communications Ltd.
