MediaG3 Announces the Commencement of the Final Phase to the China Pilot Project

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - October 8, 2009) - MediaG3, Inc. (www.mediag3.com) (PINKSHEETS: MDGC), a leading developer of broadband wireless products and services, is pleased to announce the launch of the final phase to its China Pilot Project in Yunnan Province, which has a population in the range of 45 million.

This project features MediaG3's patent protected LMDS technology as the wireless link to the provision of digital cable television to underserved Chinese households in Yunnan Province. Under the sponsorship of China's distinguished Academy of Broadcasting Science, MediaG3 will be featured in a national demonstration of its LMDS technology within the cable network of Yunnan Cable, one of the larger cable television providers in Yunnan Province.

"We are delighted to advance to the final phase in our China Pilot Project with our distinguished partners in China," says Joseph L. Anzalone, MediaG3 President & Chief Operating Officer. "For over five years now, we have worked tirelessly to demonstrate our system capabilities to the growing broadband and mobile internet markets in China. This culminated in the successful awarding of a US Government grant by The United States Trade & Development Agency, after its independent and thorough due diligence on MediaG3's technology and market viability, to provide partial funding for this pilot project. Furthermore, we received rare and commending endorsements from China's Ministry of Commerce and China's State Administration of Radio, Film, and Television," added Mr. Anzalone.

"China's rural communities are in the midst of a major evolution toward digital media and broadband infrastructure to serve hundreds of millions of Chinese households, which have been underserved to date. This rapidly evolving market and MediaG3's LMDS technology will provide a crucial 'last mile solution' to the broadband and mobile network expansion in rural China," added MediaG3 China Market General Manager, Gordon Guo.

The Chinese telecommunications and broadband market is the largest in the world. The mobile sector is expanding at over 18% per year without the added benefit of 3G services. Once the 3G services are rolled out, the market growth is expected to accelerate, and MediaG3 will be well positioned to address this demand.

"With our LMDS broadband wireless as the backhaul infrastructure, we will pave the road for Imperial Wireless 4G WiMAX and our video technology and products to enter the vast China market," says Val Westergard, Chairman of MediaG3. "We are very excited about this unparalleled opportunity and potential to participate in the largest broadband market in the world."
