PARIS and SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic -- ONEMAX, a new and innovative broadband wireless access provider serving the Dominican Republic, and Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced the launch of the first worldwide WiMAX 802.16e-2005 (Rev-e) network in the 3.5 Gigahertz (GHz) spectrum.

ONEMAX is the first service provider in the Dominican Republic to offer subscribers and visitors wireless high-speed broadband Internet, multimedia and Voice over IP (VoIP) services. WiMAX is a flexible wireless technology that enables people to access high-speed, high-quality broadband wireless services wherever they are, providing truly “universal” wireless broadband access in fixed, nomadic and mobile environments.

“The launch of ONEMAX is generating a great deal of excitement in the Dominican Republic, an ideal market for WiMAX technology because of its strong economy and relatively large and young population of more than 9 million people whose rapidly growing demand for broadband services needs to be met,” said Raoul Fontanez, ONEMAX CEO. “We are going to open the door to the new concept of Mediacom provider: Internet, telephony, and new communication services. With this concept information technology and entertainment are fully integrated in our customer’s daily experience. We greatly appreciate the work performed by Alcatel-Lucent to date. We selected Alcatel-Lucent as our exclusive partner because they were the first to delivery WiMAX Rev-e solutions.”
