PITT MEADOWS, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 9, 2009) - Tranzeo Wireless Technologies Inc. (TSX:TZT), a premier manufacturer of wireless broadband and WiMAX communication systems has received U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Utilities Service (RUS) Acceptance for a wide variety of its products operating in the licensed and unlicensed frequency bands. The equipment accepted by the RUS includes Tranzeo's backhaul, point-to-multipoint, and public safety bands equipment, allowing RUS funding to be used for complete end to end solutions.

"This announcement means that rural communities will have a variety of low cost options for both last mile and for long range backhaul equipment.
