5G Wireless Signs Service Agreement With Ibis Trail at Covington in Louisiana

MARINA DEL REY, CA--(Marketwire - July 17, 2007) - 5G Wireless Communications, Inc. (OTCBB: FGWI), a leader in the wireless broadband industry, designing, manufacturing, installing and operating networks at many university and college campuses, hospitality and time share locations, healthcare and senior care facilities, announced today that it has begun offering wireless Internet service to residents at Ibis Trail apartment communities in Covington, Louisiana. Using forty-four 5G Wireless 650 Base Stations, wireless access will be available throughout the community, indoors and out, covering twenty-two buildings and all common areas such as clubhouses, game rooms, and poolside.

"5G Wireless installed its equipment providing our residents with a secure and dependable Internet solution. The entire deployment was smooth from start to finish and was completed in less than one week," said Marco Castro, Director of IT for Astor Companies. "Residents are looking for mobility, convenience, affordability and ease of use and 5G is delivering this complete solution." Castro added, "Seeing is believing and once we experience the 5G solution, we are certain to expand into other Astor properties."

For Astor residents, users simply register once and then are able to connect. The simplicity of the 5G service eliminates the hassle and expense of extra equipment such as cable or DSL modems and additional wireless routers, and the wireless coverage is everywhere! Users who don't have a built-in wireless Wi-Fi modem in their computers can purchase one online or at most computer stores.

"We are excited about our relationship with Astor Companies," said Don Boudewyn, 5G Wireless Executive Vice President and Director of Business Development. "Our solution offers a simple, turnkey wireless service that can be offered to current and potential residents to further enhance the property's amenities. We are also looking forward to becoming a leader in the emerging industry of managed high-speed wireless Internet services to multifamily communities," continued Boudewyn. "This vertical fits right into our recurring business model, which is meeting all of our expectations."

5G offers property managers, REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts) and individual multifamily community owners a valuable, competitive differentiator and a new way to achieve higher occupancy and strong rental rates, ultimately satisfying the needs of today's connected generation of tenants.
