Metropolis Technology Corp. Announces Subsidiary CyberGlobe Has Entered Into a Memorandum of Understanding With SURPOST to Create a Network of City Portals in Suriname

PORT OF SPAIN, TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 2, 2006 -- Metropolis Technologies Corp. (OTC: MTPT) announced today that its subsidiary, CyberGlobe International Holdings AVV Limited, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with SURPOST (the Postal Agency in Suriname) for the joint development of an interconnected city portal network.

Michael Smith, President, stated, "This quasi private/public sector initiative will yield enormous benefits to the citizens of Suriname. SURPOST (a Crown Corporation) will initially launch the first city portal in the capital city, Paramaribo. The goal of the joint venture is to establish a portal in every market that SURPOST presently serves.

"SURPOST chose to work with the CyberGlobe and its technology because of its ease of use, and self management capabilities. This portal will deliver real-time information about government services, tourism and cultural information to its local client base, and its growing visitor base, with particular emphasis on ecotourism.

"The fact that a Crown Corporation is utilizing our software is yet another testimony that both the public and private sectors are keenly interested in creating interconnected electronic communities. We are extremely excited about the possibilities that this joint venture will create. These electronic communities provide a way of sharing information about Suriname with its citizens, expatriate community and the world at large. CyberGlobe and SURPOST will share revenues on a transaction basis for all joint venture activities.

"eCommerce transactions are a way of life in the G-8 countries, often developing countries like Suriname do not have a way of joining the eCommerce revolution. The CyberGlobe business model allows all organizations large and small to sell their goods and services online. SURPOST provides both international wire transfer services, and internet café's throughout the region, and the combination of CyberGlobe's software and SURPOST's infrastructure is a very important strategic relationship."
