Trimax/PLC Signs Contract With IP Applications

Collaboration Delivers Significant Efficiencies and Ongoing Innovation

TORONTO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 18, 2006 -- Trimax Corporation and its wholly owned subsidiary, PLC Network Solutions Inc. (PLC) (OTC BB: TMXO), a leading provider of Broadband over Powerline (BPL) communication technologies, announced today that it has closed on an agreement with IP Applications Corp. of Vancouver, BC, Canada, an expert in the management and delivery of business processes and services over the Internet.

Under the agreement, IP Applications will provide Trimax/PLC with the essential operational and support services (i.e. BPL user account provisioning and management, authentication, billing and 24/7 multilingual technical help desk) and Internet applications (i.e. email, anti-spam, anti-virus, web content filtering) required to manage and support the company's BPL services.

BPL technology uses the existing electrical infrastructure to create a high-speed broadband communication network which can be used for Internet, VoIP, IPTV, and Smart Grid Utility applications.

This partnership agreement completes Trimax/PLC operational and network requirements for launch of its BPL offering. It will allow Trimax/PLC to achieve significant efficiencies and gain access to resources and different skill sets and expertise. Trimax's partnerships have improved its ability to innovate and compete as it moves from test pilots and NDAs to execution with some of the power and utilities corporations and commercial and residential landlords it is presently working with.

"Confidently outsourcing these critical elements of the business allows us to focus on our strategic plan and accelerates our time to market exponentially," stated Derek Pepler, President of Trimax / PLC. "We are pleased at the level of professionalism and quality of service delivered by IP Applications and look forward to future collaboration and the development of innovative technologies to service the BPL industry."

John Jacobson, President and CEO for IP Applications, said, "We look forward to supporting Trimax/PLC in the execution and management of their BPL offering across North America. We've been expecting that leaders would emerge in the BPL market, and are very pleased to be working with Trimax/PLC."

Trimax / PLC Network Solutions anticipates 2006 to be an extraordinary year for both the company and the BPL industry as a whole.
