NextPhase Wireless to Offer Comprehensive Online Backup Solutions for Business Customers

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwire - January 9, 2008) - NextPhase Wireless, Inc. (OTCBB: NPHS), a nationwide developer of WiMAX-ready networks and provider of advanced wireless broadband solutions, today announced that it is launching a comprehensive suite of robust, secure, scalable and cost-effective online backup services for businesses of all sizes.

"The ever-increasing deluge of information that companies require to run their businesses, and the mission-critical nature of that information, means that it is essential that they adopt comprehensive data backup and recovery strategies to ensure data integrity, reliability and business continuity in the event of a disaster. Sadly, too many companies wait until they experience significant data loss before they realize that they even need a backup strategy, or worse, determine that what they had in place was insufficient and that they're unable to recover the lost information," stated Tom Hemingway, Chairman and COO of NextPhase.

"Traditionally, tape media has been used for data backups. However, this medium is relatively slow and, being hardware-based, introduces potential points of failure (e.g. dirty heads, tape wears out, etc.). In addition, tape-based technologies cannot scale to meet rapidly growing tomes of information that requires backing up, and so businesses -- irrespective of size, require a different solution. Fortunately, many of these companies already have a business-class Internet connection which can be utilized to rapidly and cost-effectively deploy robust, secure and scalable online backup services that easily configure to meet their specific needs," added Hemingway.

Complementing its existing range of innovative managed IT services that focus on delivering affordable security, disaster recovery and network performance services its customers, NextPhase is launching the following suite of new highly scalable online backup services, designed for businesses of all sizes:

--  SpeedVault SOHO(SM) -- Easy to install, easy to use online remote
    backup solutions for Small Office / Home Office environments with 1 to 10
    employees.
    
--  SpeedVault SMB(SM) -- Easy to deploy, easy to manage remote backup
    solutions for Small and Medium Businesses with up to 250 employees,
    potentially spread over multiple locations.

    manage remote backup solutions for large Enterprises, potentially spread
    over multiple locations.
