WESTPORT, Conn. -- Artera Group Inc., a subsidiary of NCT Group, Inc. (OTCBB:NCTI), today announced a wireless application for Artera Turbo(TM) Virtual Broadband(TM). Wireless Internet browsing can be achieved using a cellular phone to deliver Virtual Broadband to the PC. This is an important application for people trying to conduct business while on the road, in airports or remote locations. When Artera Turbo Virtual Broadband is applied to the Verizon Express 3G service, which normally delivers speeds of 40 to 60 kbps, minimum average speeds of 256 kbps, comparable to DSL, can be achieved. Virtual Broadband enhances the speed of all browsing activities including web surfing, web-based email and file transfer. Artera Turbo Virtual Broadband is expected to be available in late 2002. "We implemented this application using a Verizon Express Wireless cell phone with the $99 unlimited minutes data option," said Michael J. Parrella, chairman and CEO of the NCT Group, Inc. "Within four hours, which is the time it takes to activate the service, we were running Virtual Broadband. The wireless implementation is a very exciting one. When you consider the poor landline capabilities around the world, Artera's wireless Virtual Broadband solution can be a cost effective alternative." Artera Group Inc. Verizon Wireless
