NWT Enterprises Selects Tinet for High Performance IP Transit Services

Leading IP Network and Broadband Service Provider to Also Utilize Tinet for Its Market-Leading Ethernet and VPLS Services

CUMBERLAND, MD and MILAN, ITALY--(Marketwire - May 23, 2011) - NWT Enterprises, a service provider in next-generation IP network and broadband services for residential and business-market segments in the USA, announces today its selection of Tinet, a Neutral Tandem company (NASDAQ: TNDM) and a global carrier exclusively committed to the IP and Ethernet wholesale markets, to deliver IP Transit services via 10Gb ports in Washington, DC, New York City, Atlanta, Miami and additional markets over the next 24 Months. As the relationship between the two companies expands, NWT Enterprises also seeks to connect via an External Network to Network Interface (E-NNI) utilizing Tinet's EtherCloud(SM) service. EtherCloud is a Layer 2 platform connecting diverse partner networks into a seamless Ethernet cloud that delivers end-to-end connectivity around the world. It relies on Tinet's global MPLS backbone as a distributed switched network. EtherCloud is currently present at 120 Points of Presence (PoPs) in four continents, to interconnect partners' networks, through standardized E-NNIs.

Based in Cumberland, Maryland, NWT Enterprises is highly devoted to increasing its availability and level of bandwidth services. The company recently acquired fiber with breakout availability throughout the state of Maryland, including Washington, DC. The service provider is also presently building out a fiber network in the state of Florida, and has Indefeasible Rights of Use (IRU) agreements in place to a new fiber build that will connect many Tier 1 US Markets.

"As a competitive service provider aiming to meet the demands of our customers who order extremely high bandwidth services, we are most pleased with our choice of Tinet as our IP Transit provider," states Kevin Manovich, President and CEO, of NWT Enterprises. "Tinet is extremely well known in the market for providing high performance and cost-effective connectivity to its customers. Tinet excels at delivering IP Transit services with maximum simplicity, efficiency, and with the highest level of customer service."

"Tinet is pleased to work with NWT Enterprises, delivering both our IP Transit services and our EtherCloud service," states Paolo Gambini, Chief Marketing Officer of Tinet. "We share a common goal with NWT Enterprises; we ensure the highest standard of quality for connectivity to our customers. We look forward to working with NWT as they continue to quickly grow and serve this marketplace."

About NWT Enterprises

NWT ENTERPRISES has three primary missions: The first is to deliver high data rate services to regions throughout the country that have historically been underserved and considered lower priority by established telecommunications carriers. The second is to provide data center services and connectivity for business and Governmental agencies faced with continuity-of-operation requirements and new digital information regulations. The third is to meet the needs of large private and public entities as well as other telecommunications firms that have transmission capacity requirements that far exceed available circuits.

NWT ENTERPRISES currently has a number of corporate customers ordering very high bandwidth services. As demands rise even higher, NWT ENTERPRISES is prepared to provide services at ever higher data rates over dedicated lines and/or connections directly to the Internet.

NWT ENTERPRISES' ability to enter the market with such advanced service offerings is based on its ability to adapt the latest state of the art equipment versus the burden of having to use, and amortize, much older equipment -- the "curse" of long established service providers.
