RICHARDSON, Texas -- ZAMNET Communication Systems, the pioneering Internet Service Provider in Zambia, is staying at the cutting edge of technology with its recently introduced wireless broadband service supplied by Navini Networks, the global leader in providing plug-n-play personal broadband wireless access solutions.

The freedom of wireless coupled with high-speed access, is really changing the way customers are using the Internet. Customers now have flexibility as to where and when they connect to the Internet, no longer needing to worry about having a fixed telephone line before they can get an Internet account.

Currently, ZAMNET's unwired broadband service is available in most parts of Lusaka, except for the far side of Makeni and Chilanga. The service is also available in Kitwe and parts of Kalulushi.

ZAMNET plans to cover most of Lusaka and Kitwe by the second half of 2007. Plans are underway to introduce the service in other towns on the Copperbelt.

"This is the first truly mobile Wireless Broadband internet solution on the Zambian market," said ZAMNET'S Managing Director, Ms. Chishala Kateka. "This means that the towns that have this solution have become 'hotspots' for users within ZAMNET'S coverage areas. Users will be able to have access to their high speed broadband wherever and whenever they want."

"Navini's pre-mobile WiMAX solution is perfect for ZAMNET," said Roger Dorf, Navini's president and CEO. "This is yet another operator in Africa that is embracing the concept of personal broadband with 802.16e WiMAX."
