BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Siemens Communications, Inc. today announced that Internet Service Provider 20/20 Communications of Ann Arbor, Michigan, is using Siemens solutions and services on the "Wireless Washtenaw" project in Michigan's Washtenaw County. County officials developed the project to bring wireless broadband service to all areas of the county, especially to suburban and rural residents who could only access the Internet using slower-speed dialup connections. Siemens and 20/20 have already begun installing wireless infrastructure in Ann Arbor, Saline, and Manchester as part of a pilot program that county officials expect will pave the way for full-scale deployment of services in 2007.

"This pioneering effort to provide a convenient, openly mobile and secure wireless Internet experience to everyone in the community regardless of their geographic location or economic status is of great importance to Siemens," said Dana Rasmussen, President, Sales and Services, Siemens Communications Inc. "Wireless Washtenaw will improve the quality of life and support economic growth in Washtenaw County, while serving as a model for other communities to follow."
