Rapid Link Opens New Data Center in Atlanta

3,000 Sq. Ft. Data Center in Atlanta, Georgia Now Available for Enterprise and Carrier Customers

OMAHA, NE--(Marketwire - December 22, 2008) - Rapid Link, Incorporated (OTCBB: RPID), a leading provider of WiMax and Communication Services, announced today the construction of its new data center in Atlanta, Georgia.

Many companies north of Atlanta have a need for an enterprise-class data center facility to house their critical IT infrastructure. Traditionally, this would require them to rent expensive and crowded co-location space in downtown Atlanta. Rapid Link's new facility gives these customers a way to meet their requirements in a much more convenient and less expensive location.

Kris Maher, Director of National Sales for Rapid Link, said, "Normally, companies in Alpharetta and Marietta would have to co-locate with a provider downtown to meet their IT needs. Our new space at Spaghetti Junction is far more accessible. As a bonus, when our regular access customers are also co-located at our data center they can be on-net to their own servers and experience better performance than would be available if they were located elsewhere."

Rapid Link has leveraged its expertise in fiber and wireless networking to ensure maximum reliability. "Our new facility is unique in that we have both fiber and fixed wireless connectivity to our national backbone. By utilizing two different technologies, we achieve network redundancy and full path diversity," noted Matt Liotta, Chief Technology Officer of Rapid Link. Space will be available at this new center in January 2009.

Chris Canfield, Chief Executive Officer of Rapid Link, added, "Adding a revenue-generating data center space as a component to regular network expansion is a key factor in Rapid Link's strategy to increase the return on our network investment."
