MediaG3's Imperial Wireless IW4G, a New Generation of WIMAX

The 4G customer experience is similar to that provided by Wi-Fi, but without the short range limitations of a traditional Internet hot spot. The companies are all using a wireless 4G technology that differs from Wi-Fi called WiMAX, which provides service areas measured in miles, not feet. Further, IW4G gives you average mobile download speeds of 3 to 6 mbps with bursts over 10 mbps.*

As the Internet integrates deeper into daily life, the opportunities to stay connected and be increasingly productive are enhanced by IW4G in numerous ways:

--  A busy parent who wants full Internet connectivity for kids studying
    or playing games in the back of the family minivan;
--  A college student or retiree looking for one affordable Internet
    service provider to meet their needs at home, on campus and on-the-go;
--  A mobile professional who is unsatisfied with the speeds and
    limitations of 3G modem cards or the need to seek out Wi-Fi hotspots;
--  A commuter interested in working or accessing entertainment sites like
    Hulu or Pandora on the way home.

For these and many other recipients, IW4G's simple and innovative pricing structure provides ultimate flexibility. IW4G's mobile and residential plans can be purchased by the day or by the month, and with several no service contract options available. Home Internet service plans start at $25 per month, while mobile Internet plans start at $35 per month, or customers can purchase a convenient day pass for $10. Additional savings are available for customers by purchasing a combination of services that could include home-and-mobile or mobile-and-mobile Internet plans starting at $50 for both, or by signing up for a two-year service agreement. The dual-mode 4G/3G plan is available for just $70 per month with a two-year service agreement. Customers can find full details about pricing options, business plans and purchase the service online at, or by visiting other authorized Imperial Wireless dealers.

Simply Plug-In and Go

IW4G offers several simple choices for broadband connectivity.

--  IW4G USB Modem and IW4G+ Mobile: Mobile users simply plug-in IW4G's
    compact, mobile WiMAX-enabled USB modem into their laptop to get online.
    The USB modem, from Motorola, is available for only $49.99 for a limited
    time or leased for just $4.99 per month. Customers can purchase the modem
    from a store or online. Customers who travel across the U.S. may purchase
    the IW4G+ mobile USB, a dual-mode (4G/3G) modem from IW4G. The dual-mode
    capabilities give the truly mobile user access to nationwide 3G network
    service whenever the IW4G service is not available. The IW4G+ mobile USB is
    available to lease for only $5.99 per month.
--  Residential data & voice services: For residential service, IW4G
    offers customers a wireless high-speed modem, about the size of a small
    book. Customers simply plug the modem into a power outlet anywhere in their
    home or office and connect the modem to their PC or wireless router. This
    enables consumers and businesses to install high-speed Internet service
    without the need to schedule an appointment, drill holes in their walls, or
    otherwise disrupt their day. The IW4G Modem, a residential modem from
    Motorola, can be purchased for $69.99 for a limited time or leased for just
    $4.99 monthly. Residential customers can also add in-home voice service
    with purchase of the IW4G Voice Adapter for $15, and receive unlimited

    device (compatible with 802.11b/g) can connect to IW4G's mobile WiMAX
    network. The IW4GSpot creates a personal Wi-Fi hotspot that travels with
    consumers anywhere they happen to be within IW4G's mobile WiMAX service
    area. This $139.99 device is a portable, battery-powered router that
    seamlessly connects up to eight standard Wi-Fi-enabled devices (computers,
    mobile phones, portable gaming, consoles, cameras, etc.) to the Internet
    via a IW4G USB modem to access IW4G's mobile WiMAX network. The IW4G Spot
    is compatible with both the IW4G and IW4GG+ mobile USB dual-mode service
