Relationship Fosters the Rapid Deployment of Broadband Wireless Services to Cities and Municipalities in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and More

MARINA DEL REY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 7, 2006 -- 5G Wireless Communications Inc. (OTC BB: FGWI), an emerging leader in the wireless broadband industry, today announced that it has signed an Authorized Channel Partner agreement with United Arab Emirates (UAE) corporation, DigitalSkys LLC, a provider of next generation global telecommunications. DigitalSkys will be showcasing the 5G Wireless broadband solutions and products at the 12th Annual CABSAT Middle East convention in Dubai, which presents the latest developments in the Electronic Media and Communications industry from more than 400 companies in 50 countries, this week March 7-9, in Hall 7, Stand A7-21.

The companies will work together to develop wireless solutions and services via Wi-Fi networks throughout the Middle East. The agreement will provide for a means of distribution to existing telecommunications providers in the region and allow for the rapid deployment of broadband wireless services to cities and municipalities in the region.

5G Wireless offers broad coverage, rapid deployment capabilities, and low total cost of ownership. The company will provide its new "cellular-style" wireless base stations and high performance microcells to enhance and ensure high-speed and uninterrupted wireless connectivity. The new VAR (Value Added Reseller) arrangement with DigitalSkys LLC allows 5G Wireless to penetrate the Middle Eastern regional wireless market through the strong relationships and tremendous expertise of existing telecommunications requirements built by DigitalSkys.

"5G Wireless will provide us with advanced and revolutionary wireless broadband solutions and products to strengthen high-speed, high-quality connectivity for our customers," says Charles De'Alberto, CEO of DigitalSkys LLC. "Our commitment to excellent customer service and drive for the latest telecommunications applications combined with 5G's developments in Wi-Fi enhancement can propel us to the head of the UAE market and beyond."

DigitalSkys offers next-generation global telecommunications solutions by combining high-performance technologies with first-class service. DigitalSkys' solutions include connectivity products, applications and services to enable a host of broadband Internet-based applications required today.

"We are excited to be working with such successful and business savvy telecommunications company," says Jerry Dix, CEO of 5G Wireless. "DigitalSkys' knowledge and expertise in the industry and strong relations with global organizations in the rapidly developing city of Dubai and surrounding areas in the Middle East, allow us to tap into a market with a high demand for wireless Internet solutions."

5G Wireless uses its new cellular-style Wi-Fi base stations to create a broad service area with non-line-of-sight (NLOS) capabilities. These enhancements are compatible with standard IEEE 802.11b/g Wi-Fi equipment. The 5G Wi-Fi Hotzones™ function through macro-cell base stations deployed from tall towers and the tops of tall buildings, while dead spots are filled in with smaller micro cells following the proven deployment strategy used today by the cellular carriers. This type of structural design allows for a well-tailored combination of cells resulting in the ability to add higher capacity where and when needed. 5G Wireless Base Stations have the advantage of multiple usage and varying functionalities for both the private and public sectors including governance and administration for government departments, security and intelligence purposes, and educational uses, as well as for the management of data by businesses and companies.
