NextPhase Wireless to Boost Capacity and Coverage on Southern California Network

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwire - October 4, 2007) - NextPhase Wireless, Inc. (OTCBB: NXPW), a next-generation wireless connectivity solutions provider specializing in integrated Internet, voice and data communication, today announced its plans to boost network capacity and coverage on its Southern California wireless footprint with the introduction of Picocell technologies.

"Last month we announced that we had completed the migration of our network backhaul traffic to licensed spectrum. Now, in continuing to meet the rapidly growing bandwidth requirements of our expanding customer base, while delivering the carrier-class (99.999%) availability that they demand, we are adding additional Picocells to our wireless service area, allowing us to boost both network capacity and coverage. Once the test phase is complete (by year-end), rollout will continue through the first half of 2008," said Tom Hemingway, Chairman and COO.

Leveraging lessons learned from the cell phone industry, Picocells are lower-cost mini-PoPs (Points of Presence) that allow significant performance gains. Because of Picocells' smaller wireless footprint, spectrum can be re-used across the network, noise is reduced and bandwidth availability is increased.
