5G Wireless Takes Over Management of Wireless Network at Powhatan Plantation Adding to Its Growing List of Wireless Resorts

Wi-Fi Hardware Manufacturer and Services Provider 5G Wireless Assumes Contract to Provide High-Speed Wireless Internet Access

MARINA DEL REY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 22, 2007 -- 5G Wireless (OTCBB: FGWI) announced today that it is assuming network management duties at the Powhatan Plantation, a time share resort located just two miles from colonial Williamsburg. This property is another in the family of Sunterra managed locations that are presently being serviced as a part of 5G's nationwide network of wireless resorts.

"Bringing Powhatan into the wireless fold is a positive turning point in our on-going relationship with Sunterra and represents another vote of confidence in our ability to provide a quality, managed wireless service," said Jerry Dix, CEO of 5G Wireless. "A previous wireless deployment of this property by another provider has left numerous Wi-Fi 'dark spots' in the existing network and we plan to re-deploy using our G-Force 650 units throughout the property in order to provide ubiquitous wireless broadband coverage."

Powhatan Plantation resort has 440 condominium units spread across 93 buildings and offers a slice of American history with the restored Manor House (circa 1735). Amid 256 rolling woodland acres, the Powhatan Plantation offers a variety of fun during any season including cascading indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts, an outdoor pavilion and playground, and hiking and exercise trails.

5G estimates that Powhatan will contribute in excess of $100,000 per year to our revenue stream and further consolidates the management of wireless networks in Sunterra North America under one roof.

5G's G-Force 650™ is a highly efficient broadband Wi-Fi device designed to cover large indoor areas and can provide up to 5 times the coverage of traditional Wi-Fi devices. The unit was just recently released on March 7, 2007 (See link: 5G Wireless Announces New G-Force 650™ Designed for Fast, Turnkey Deployments to Time Shares and Resorts).
