NextPhase Wireless Provides Network Upgrade / Expansion Update

ANAHEIM, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 24, 2007 -- NextPhase Wireless (OTCBB: NXPW), a next-generation wireless company that specializes in integrated Internet, voice and data communication, today confirmed that it is on target to complete its migration to licensed spectrum for network backhaul by 3Q07 and provided more details on the next stage of its network expansion plans.

"Earlier in the year, we announced our plans to migrate to licensed spectrum for network backhaul, allowing us to continue to meet the rapidly growing bandwidth requirements of our existing customer base, while delivering the carrier-class (99.999%) availability that they demand. Since then equipment prices have continued to fall, while performance and scalability has continued to improve, enabling us to make progress on this aggressive upgrade, and we are on target to complete the migration by the end of 3Q07," said Tom Hemingway, Chairman and COO.

Continued improvements in wireless equipment price / performance has enabled the Company to accelerate the extension of its wireless footprint and deepen coverage, allowing delivery of higher levels of connectivity services to the 135,000 businesses in Southern California within Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino Counties. Market research suggests, and the Company's experience confirms, that business customers are increasingly demanding flexible, scalable, reliable and cost-effective connectivity solutions, and wireless technologies are uniquely positioned to satisfy those needs.

In extending and enhancing the Company's wireless footprint, NextPhase Wireless is delivering on its commitment to rollout its portfolio of broadband connectivity services nationwide. As the year progresses, it will continue to expand into other key states and regions, and the Company expects to generate substantial additional revenues and increased market valuation from this expansion program.
