Innovative Internet TV Channel Powered by Internap's Content Delivery Network (CDN) Offers Exclusive Video Programming and Broadcast Platform to Target Select Government Communities

CHANTILLY, VA and ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - September 16, 2008) - TV Worldwide (www.TVWorldwide.com), the Internet's first global TV network (est. 1999), and Internap (NASDAQ: INAP), a global provider of end-to-end Internet business solutions, today announced the launch of a suite of digital media, Web casting and content delivery tools for federal, state and city government organizations. These services include the availability of FedEdTV (www.FedEdTV.com), an Internet TV channel for government agencies unveiled in beta form at TV Worldwide's official Web cast of the FOSE Government Expo in March 2008. Under the agreement between Internap and TV Worldwide, Internap's Content Delivery Network (CDN) will be the exclusive network provider for FedEdTV, and Internap will be a charter sponsor of the programming.

"Government agencies and contractors trust TV Worldwide to deliver compelling and informative video programming and our CDN services deliver that programming with the highest quality and reliability," said James P. DeBlasio, president and CEO of Internap. "Working together with TV Worldwide will help us increase our presence in government markets and FedEdTV will be a showcase for our services."

TV Worldwide has a 10-year history as the leading provider of Internet TV delivery production solutions and applications, including the creation, promotion and distribution of the first network of community-based Internet TV channels. In 2007, TV Worldwide and Internap worked together to embed Internap's CDN into many of TV Worldwide's government-related live Internet TV programs and Web casts. This included the support of 15 federal agencies, state-government related organizations, such as the National Governors Association, and programming for over 1,600 municipalities represented by the National League of Cities. The FedEdTV Internet TV channel is an interactive viewing platform, featuring a rich archive of video content on a full spectrum of public sector issues from housing and e-health initiatives to homeland security and veterans' business initiatives.

"TV Worldwide has extensive experience working with Internap's robust CDN, which is especially well-suited for supporting on-demand video and live Web events," said Dave Gardy, chairman and CEO of TV Worldwide. "The combination of TV Worldwide's Internet TV production capabilities, our long history of supporting public sector organizations and Internap's world-class CDN, provides federal, state and city government agencies with the latest in reliable Internet TV and digital media solutions. We will also leverage these new capabilities to expand our partnerships with government media entities, including our other public-sector partner Internet TV channels, such as National League of Cities TV (NLC TV, www.NLCTV.org)."

Internap's CDN solution features a 100% service level agreement (SLA) ensuring quality and uptime. The global network supports all major streaming media formats, including Adobe® Flash®, Microsoft® Windows Media™, Silverlight™ and HTTP/Web downloads.
