CinTel Corp. in Consortium With KT Corp. Secures a Significant Kuwaiti Project

LOUISVILLE, KY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 23, 2006 -- CinTel Corp. (OTC BB: CNCN), a leader in Internet traffic management, announced today it has secured and signed a contract worth approximately US$450,000 for the global system integration project in four Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. ("HHI"; plants located in Kuwait. CinTel Corp. in consortium with KT Corp (formerly, Korea Telecom Corp.; has been contracted to build the voice, data and network project, including supply of iCache for this project.

HHI is one of the best and leading heavy industry companies in the world and is renowned for its shipbuilding and plant construction. To facilitate seamless communication between the plant construction site in Kuwait and its headquarters in Ulsan, Korea, the consortium of CinTel and KT will be providing a communications network using KT's satellite network. HHI has selected the CinTel/KT consortium for this project to build and maintain the voice and data communication network.

CinTel will play a vital role in the data network portion's architecture design and system equipment selection. The Kuwait project will require establishing a wireless data network of 10Mbps between the Kuwait headquarters branch office and the four plants, and a satellite network between the Kuwait branch office and the Ulsan main headquarters. CinTel will install iCache to dramatically improve the limited network bandwidth and response time to the Kuwait branch office.

As this is the first time that HHI is establishing its own data network at a project location, CinTel/KT consortium expects there may be many more such projects overseas with HHI. This represents the first overseas project since CinTel and KT began their cooperative working relationship starting with the National Museum of Korea ( project in 2005. CinTel and KT have demonstrated they have an enviably solid relationship and expect they will be able to cooperate in many other projects. Sang-Don Kim, the CEO of CinTel said, "This first major overseas project with HHI is quite meaningful for CinTel as it targets the overseas markets as one of the key growth areas for revenues for CinTel. We will continue to focus on HHI and other overseas projects in conjunction with KT. In this HHI Kuwait project, CinTel is responsible not merely for supplying the internet traffic management ("ITM") solution, but also for the management and building of the entire data network. CinTel will continue to expand its expertise-base gathered through ITM solutions into other network solutions."
