FORT STOCKTON, Texas -- Wireless Frontier Internet Inc. (Pink Sheets:WFRI), an industry-leading provider of wireless broadband Internet access for rural-based home and business consumers, announces that Kelly E. Simmons has joined the company as its new Chief Financial Officer.

Mr. Simmons, a Texas CPA, has over 25 years experience in financial management including accounting, SEC reporting, mergers and acquisitions, information systems, and investor relations.

From 1988 to 2000, Mr. Simmons held various positions, including CFO, with two affiliated public companies, US Long Distance (Nasdaq:USLD) and Billing Concepts (Nasdaq:BILL) which grew from $2M in 1988 to over $500M in 1999 with over 1,200 employees. "BILL" was the 6th most profitable company on NASDAQ in 1998, 13th in 1997. USLD grew largely through acquisitions, and Mr. Simmons led that activity for the company. Most recently Mr. Simmons was with Edgen Corporation, a private company owner of pipe distributorships in 20 states around the country. Edgen was also developed through acquisitions.

"Kelly has a wealth of knowledge of public company transactions that are closely aligned to our business model and focus. He also has broad Corporate Board experience that is critical in light of the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. We are very glad to have Mr. Simmons on board," commented Alex Gonzalez, Chairman and CEO of Wireless Frontier Internet.

Wireless Frontier also confirmed today that it has ceased acquisition discussions with IPVoice Communications Inc. (OTCBB:IPVO). The two companies had announced a March 2nd Letter of Intent (LOI) to explore the combination of the operations of the two companies.

"We remain committed to growing our business in rural areas, delivering wireless broadband services to an underserved portion of the marketplace. Our decision to cease discussions with IPVoice resulted from our conviction that our goals are not compatible with those of IPVoice," stated Alex Gonzalez, Chief Executive Officer of Wireless Frontier.
