MediaG3 Announces the Launch of Imperial Wireless™ 4G WiMAX Services in Boise, Idaho

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - October 5, 2009) - MediaG3, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: MDGC), a leading developer of broadband wireless products and services, is pleased to announce the launch of Imperial Wireless™ 4G WiMAX services in Boise, Idaho within the 4G network powered by a major national carrier. The Imperial Wireless 4G WiMAX platform will provide "super fast" mobile internet service areas planned to reach up to 70 markets consisting of over 10 million people by the end of 2011.

The Imperial Wireless 4G WiMAX platform currently delivers Ultra High-Speed Mobile Internet Service to 20 US markets. Targeted to serve commercial and residential consumers with true broadband speeds, services will be readily available at home, in the office, and on the go, anywhere within the planned coverage area. MediaG3 expects to greatly expand their full range of broadband services over the coming year.

Unlike competitive wireless services, Imperial Wireless™ 4G WiMAX delivers a mobile broadband Internet experience on par with speeds typically experienced only on wired connections, like DSL. With 4G WiMAX services, customers can expect to see average download speeds of 3 to 6 mbps with bursts over 10 mbps. The customer experience is similar to that provided by Wi-Fi, but without the short range limitations of a traditional hotspot. The national carrier uses a 4G technology that differs from Wi-Fi, called WiMAX, which provides service areas measured in miles, as opposed to mere feet. In these markets, the 4G network utilizes an area-wide WiMAX radio system from Motorola.

"Our exciting launch of WiMax services will be led by Imperial Wireless Founder and MediaG3 Chairman, Val Westergard, who has substantial experience in the marketing and deployment of broadband services," says Joseph L. Anzalone, President & COO of MediaG3, Inc. He continued: "Val is leading this exciting WIMAX service platform for the company, and we have great expectations that our roll-out strategy will be met with substantial demand from the markets we are pursuing. Current estimates show that the growth potential of the market for mobile interent services is approximately $55 billion over the next few years. We plan to be a substantial provider of these services," added Mr. Anzalone.

For over 30 years, Mr. Val Westergard has been recognized as an innovator in the areas of personal computing, wired and wireless networks, and Internet applications. He has played a key role in the inception and development of numerous software applications now being used in over a hundred thousand businesses, churches and schools worldwide. Mr. Westergard was a co-founder of one of the first portable, in-vehicle, voice-activated, mobile, navigation and communication computer systems. Mr. Westergard has created and operated numerous other successful business ventures during his career.
