Rapid Link's Lead Technologist to Sit on WiMAX Panel

OMAHA, NE--(Marketwire - June 16, 2008) - Rapid Link, Incorporated (OTCBB: RPID), a leading provider of WiMAX and Communication Services, is pleased to announce that Chief Technology Officer Matt Liotta is scheduled to speak as part of the WiMAX Progress Report panel at the upcoming Broadband Wireless World conference taking place June 18-19 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

    WHO:      Matt Liotta, Chief Technology Officer

    WHEN:     Wednesday, June 18, 2008
              Track: WiMAX Progress Report
              3:10 PM - 4:10 PM

    WHAT:     WiMAX Progress Report
              Through Clearwire and Sprint Nextel, WiMax has captured the
              U.S. market's attention as the "next big thing" in mobile
              broadband. But how mature is the global WiMax ecosystem, and
              how is the technology actually progressing in terms of
              carrier implementation and user takeup here in the U.S.?

Mr. Liotta states, "The term WiMAX has received lots of attention in the industry, yet many people, including insiders, are unsure how it will actually impact businesses in our space. This panel aims to clear up some common misconceptions and bring everyone up to date on where the technology really stands. Our real-word experience as a major provider of commercial voice and internet service over WiMAX has given me valuable insight into where WiMAX makes sense versus where it's simply a buzzword. I am eager to share Rapid Link's findings with the conference attendees."
