Rapid Link Delivers on Contract With Cobb County School District

Largest Employer in Cobb County Sees Six-Fold Capacity Increase

OMAHA, NE--(Marketwire - November 18, 2008) - Rapid Link, Incorporated (OTCBB: RPID), a leading provider of WiMax and Communication Services, announced today the delivery and successful installation of a three year contract to provide internet access to the Cobb County School District of Georgia.

The Cobb County School District is the second largest school district in the State of Georgia, with over 15,000 employees, 115 schools, and approximately 107,000 students.

Matt Liotta, Chief Technology Officer of Rapid Link, commented, "Previously, Cobb County District had an OC-3 (155Mbps) of internet access, which translates into less than one T1 (1.54Mbps) per school.

The ever increasing bandwidth demands by both students and employees alike make our service the perfect solution for the Cobb County District needs."
