CURACAO -- United Telecommunication Services (UTS) of Curacao has selected an Optical Ethernet solution from Nortel Networks (NYSE:NT)(TSX:NT) that will position UTS to provide advanced broadband services to residents and businesses throughout the island.

The announcement was made today at CANTO 2004, the 20th annual conference and trade exhibition of the Caribbean Association of National Telecommunication Organizations.

Optical Ethernet is a cost-effective technology that combines the simplicity and widespread use of Ethernet for both telephony and computing with the increased bandwidth and reliability of fiber optics. This allows service providers to deliver high-bandwidth services in real time by reducing delays often associated with downloading data.

UTS initially plans to deliver broadband Internet access through digital subscriber lines (DSL), virtual private networking (VPN) and other Ethernet data services using Nortel Networks Passport 8600 Ethernet Switches. The new network will ultimately position UTS to offer video services like online gaming, video calling, and 'pay-per-view' broadcast programming.
