Data Fortress Announces an Information Session Presented by Cogent Communications

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - July 5, 2005) - Data Fortress System Group Ltd. (TSX:DFG)(PINK SHEETS:DFGRF) -

President and CEO Michael Chong is pleased to announce an information session on low cost bandwidth presented by Cogent Communications on July 14th. "By bringing Cogent to our carrier neutral facility we are creating a new era for bandwidth pricing in Canada which traditionally runs between $100 and $200 per sustained meg," said Michael Chong. "Users can receive high grade low cost bandwidth from Cogent when they colocate their servers at our facility."

Cogent is a multinational Tier 1 Internet service provider consistently ranked as one of the top 10 networks in the world. Their innovative, facilities-based network spans across North America, across the Atlantic and throughout Western Europe. With over 29,000 miles of route fiber, they provide service to over 85 major markets and interconnect with over 360 other ISPs.

"...So regardless of what the industry says, look to Cogent to take the path less traveled, turn the industry on its ear with Internet pricing at $10 per megabit - or less some day - and remain focused on providing the best Internet service available at the best value in the industry. That's how I started Cogent, and that's the course we'll stay..." --- Dave Schaeffer (Founder of Cogent).

All visitors to the open house are encouraged to attend the information session to gather first hand information regarding Cogents' products and services that can now be delivered in Vancouver, BC through Data Fortress Technologies Ltd.
