FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- GlobeTel Communications Corp. (Pink Sheets: GTEM) (the "Company") today announced that in order to service broadband Internet customers in Rancho Don Antonio, an 8,000-home community in the Mexico City suburb of Tizayuca, a HotZone(TM) powered wireless backhaul link of more than 30 kilometers (18.64 miles) was established originating from the main HotZone(TM) base in Pachuca.

Internet connectivity was delivered utilizing three 5.8 Ghz point-to-point microwave links including a single 20 km (12.42 miles) microwave hop. 802.11b wireless broadband was then delivered through a series of point to multipoint connections throughout the first phase of the community, creating a Wi-Fi (2.4Ghz) "hotspot." The Company believes that the single point to point 20 km link showcases the true flexibility of its HotZone(TM) technology; withstanding transmission requirements over long distances utilizing comparatively few physical resources.

Peter Khoury, Chief Executive Officer of GlobeTel Communications Corp., stated, "The HotZone(TM) radio units proved they could deliver wireless broadband Internet over long distances in an extremely fast and cost-effective manner, without expensive and time-consuming fiber optic cables. Although we've always had faith in the integrity of HotZone(TM), we view this latest accomplishment as proof positive that this architecture can be replicated anywhere terrestrially. Eventually it will be tied commercially into our Sanswire aerial delivery platforms."
