Radiant Communications Corp. ("Radiant")(TSX VENTURE:RCX), one of

corporate office via a high-speed, secure virtual private network.
Please Mum's debit/credit transactions are encrypted at each store and

authorized in only a few seconds. Faster service is always an important
benefit for customers."
