WebTech Wireless Announces Major Government Sector Sale to the Commonwealth of Kentucky

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 27, 2009) - WebTech Wireless Inc. (TSX:WEW), a leading provider of vehicle location-based and fleet telematics services, announces that it has finalized a three-year contract, and initial sale of 273 model WT5000 Locators™, with the Commonwealth of Kentucky's Department of Administrative Services, Fleet Management Division. This exclusive vendor agreement allows all state, county and city agencies to purchase the WebTech Wireless solution through a single contract, realizing substantial savings and efficiencies, and could eventually cover all of the Commonwealth's more than 7,500 vehicles.

This solution for government brings together WebTech Wireless' proven in-vehicle Locator devices and online Quadrant™ fleet management system, with AT&T Mobility's reliable wireless network. AT&T Mobility® is WebTech Wireless' U.S. carrier partner. It highlights the ability of both companies to provide government agencies with innovative fleet management tools including: track and trace, green technology, and specialized applications such as snow plow solutions. These are greatly enhanced by WebTech's Wireless' recent acquisition of Grey Island and its InterFleet® brand, with its considerable experience working with public sector fleets.

Commenting on the sale, Anwar Sukkarie, President & CEO of WebTech Wireless, said, "We're thrilled with the progress we've made with AT&T® in the U.S. market. It has proven to be the perfect pairing of our market leading technology with AT&T's extensive sales channels and solid relationships with government and commercial customers.
