Zedi Inc. Announces Plans for Discontinuance of TELUS CDMA EVDO Service

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Oct. 24, 2013) - Zedi Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ZED) ("Zedi" or the "Corporation") announces it has received notice from TELUS Communications that the TELUS CDMA EVDO service in parts of British Columbia and Alberta will be discontinued effective March 31, 2014. Other TELUS CDMA service will not be affected and continue to operate. Zedi understands that the CDMA bandwidth will be repurposed by TELUS to expand their existing HSPA network, which is also currently used by the Corporation. TELUS has committed to work very closely with Zedi staff to minimize the impact to Zedi and to provide support. Zedi is diligently reviewing and assessing the impact of this network change for that portion of the Zedi fleet that communicates via CDMA, and is working with TELUS to develop a plan for the transition to HSPA in a manner that minimizes any impact on our customers. While the full impact of the discontinuance cannot be quantified at this time, Zedi will provide updates as to any specific impacts arising from the network change as more information becomes available.
