Chicago's Regents Park Apartments Selects MDU Communications to Provide DIRECTV and Broadband Services to its 1,000+ Residents

TOTOWA, NEW JERSEY--(Marketwire - Nov. 20, 2007) - MDU Communications International, Inc. (OTCBB:MDTV), a leading end-to-end provider of DIRECTV® digital satellite television programming, high-speed Internet and other premium communication and information services exclusively to the residential multi-dwelling unit market, has been selected to provide DIRECTV® digital satellite television programming and broadband Internet services to the two tower 1,022 unit multi-family award-winning community of Regents Park in Chicago, Illinois.

Just a few miles south of downtown, Regents Park is an upscale apartment complex in the Kenwood / Hyde Park area of Chicago. Bordering Harold Washington Park, its two parallel towers are Lake Shore Drive landmarks and overlook beautiful Lake Michigan with clear park and lake views to the east and south. The 37 floor Regents Park South Tower was completed in 1972 and the 36 floor Regents Park North Tower was completed in 1974. Regents Park is the recipient of 40 top industry awards including the winner of the 2006 National Association of Homebuilders Multi-Family Development Firm of the Year Award, winner of the coveted Grand Award for Property Excellence five of the last six years, the Mayor's Landscape Award and Best Full-Service Health Club.

The Company will be providing the 1,022 residential units with access to DIRECTV digital satellite television programming, high-speed Internet and other private cable television services and the Company anticipates approximately 65% to 75% of the residential units will subscribe to one or both services. The Company anticipates these services will be installed and ready for residents within the next sixty days and eventually the Company will be offering its new Voice over IP service.

"Regents Park is a Class A property in Chicago and one of the original large residential properties to embrace private cable over franchised cable systems and we are pleased to have been selected to provide service to this prestigious property for the next eight years," commented Mr. Sheldon Nelson, CEO of MDU Communications. "Our Midwest regional office in Chicago has done an incredible job expanding our reputation and services in this important market since we opened a few short years ago in 2004. With the new Federal Communication Commission regulations on exclusivity, the doors should open to many multi-family properties, like Regents Park, previously locked into long term exclusive contracts, expanding the presence of our Chicago and other regional markets," added Nelson.
