FierceWireless Names Metrico Wireless as One of Its "Fierce 15" Wireless Companies of 2007

Metrico Wireless on Leading Edge of Wireless Industry

WEST FRIENDSHIP, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 23, 2007 -- Metrico Wireless announced today that it has been named to the annual FierceWireless "Fierce 15" list, designating it as one of the top wireless companies of the year. FierceWireless editors evaluated hundreds of organizations, and found Metrico Wireless to be amongst the "fiercest," proven by the company's creativity and innovations in the marketplace.

FierceWireless, an internationally recognized daily email newsletter reaching more than 74,000 senior wireless industry executives, provides executives in over 100 countries with a quick, authoritative briefing on the day's top wireless stories, including new trends and technologies.

Metrico Wireless delivers wireless handset performance testing solutions that allow carriers and manufacturers to address a key source of customer dissatisfaction: quality problems caused by a wireless device's performance. While many carriers focus on providing superior network performance, the reality is that the wireless device is responsible for up to half of the performance problems experienced by users. By thoroughly testing device performance, carriers can reduce customer dissatisfaction and the costs associated with it, including higher churn and increased customer service calls.

"Metrico's wireless handset performance testing can help identify handset problems before they hit the market and consumers' hands," said Sue Marek, Editor-in-Chief of FierceMarkets.

"We are thrilled to be recognized by FierceWireless, the industry's must-read news leader," said Dimitrios Topaltzas, founder and President of Metrico. "The wireless community depends on FierceWireless to provide the most up-to-date news along with analysis of major industry trends. It is an honor to be recognized by such a well-regarded news outlet."

The FierceWireless "Fierce 15" celebrates the spirit of being "fierce" -- championing innovation and creativity, even in the face of intense competition. The complete list of winning companies is available today in a special issue of FierceWireless and on the FierceWireless Web site at http://www.fiercewireless.com.
