SYDNEY and RICHARDSON, Texas -- Unwired Australia Pty Limited, Australia's leading provider of low cost, high-speed wireless broadband, has launched its wireless broadband service in Sydney, Australia using technology from Navini Networks, Inc., the leading provider of non-line-of-sight, zero-install(TM) wide-area wireless broadband technology. Navini Networks wireless broadband technology is the platform for Unwired's delivery of broadband services to the Australian wholesale and retail market.

Navini and Unwired worked tirelessly to complete the first phase of the network rollout in just seven months. Unwired's network, at 3.5 million potential Sydney users and covering more than 1,200 square miles, is the largest broadband wireless network in Australia, as well as the largest non- line-of-sight broadband wireless network in the world.

"Navini Networks and Unwired, combined, offer a strong complementary alliance with a shared vision of providing superior, reliable, non-line-of- sight wireless broadband," said Roger Dorf, president and chief executive officer of Navini Networks. "Navini is honored to be such a critical piece of the largest non-line-of-sight broadband wireless network in the world."

In addition to the initial roll out in Sydney, Unwired has targeted Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and other key regions in Australia for service expansion. That expansion will take place after the Sydney customer base is established.

"Customer feedback on the network has been overwhelmingly positive," said David Spence, chief executive officer of Unwired. "A true 'plug and play' solution is something this area has craved for a while now. Navini's technology and its commitment and clear understanding of network requirements have played a major role in getting the network to where it is today."
