Emerging Market Greenfield Program Features Alternet Systems, Inc.'s M-Commerce and E-Ticketing Solutions for Developing Global Markets

On-Demand Presentation Available Online Today

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - October 1, 2009) - Alternet Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: ALYI) and its mobile commerce and electronic ticketing payment services and solutions for emerging markets have been featured in a Greenfield program presentation being released today. Alternet's solutions focus on effective and profitable mobile payment and m-commerce systems and solutions that tie together telecom operators, financial institutions, and payees such as mass public transportation and utility providers. With the majority of the population in emerging markets belonging to the "unbanked" sector, mobile banking opens up a major opportunity to deliver financial services to a rapidly growing subscriber base. Penetration of mobile services around the world has increased rapidly, with the subscriber base worldwide growing from just over 11 million mobile phone users in 1990 to over 3 billion in 2008. Growth is particularly impressive in developing economies. With only 1 billion bank accounts worldwide and close to 4 billion mobile phone subscribers, both mobile network operators and financial institutions recognize the value proposition in offering mobile financial services.

Greenfield Program's Focus on Technology in Emerging Markets

The Greenfield program has been developed to accelerate the introduction of new technologies into emerging markets around the world where technology buying is on the rise, while improving return on investment (ROI) potential. Alternet has been participating in the Greenfield program this year with a focus on Latin America.

Earlier this week, Alternet Systems announced plans to jointly pursue the mobile computing and smartphone market in Central and South America with NuMobile, Inc, also part of the Greenfiled program. NuMobile is building a portfolio of proprietary software product offerings for the smartphone and mobile computing market complimenting Alternet's m-commerce and e-ticketing solutions. A link to the presentation will be available at http://www.numobileinc.com/Webcast_10_01_09.html later today.
