Default BT to deploy "Radio Broadband" in NI

Tel-Aviv, Israel, August 2, 2004 - Alvarion Ltd has announced that BT's
trials of its Radio Broadband (Broadband Wireless Access) technology have
been successfully concluded, and that BT has signed an initial contract with
Alvarion to help bring the solution to market. An initial order has already
been placed by BT, for equipment for its first sites in Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland is set to be the first region to deploy Radio Broadband,
following a DETI contract awarded to BT on March 29, to provide 100%
broadband coverage in Northern Ireland by December 2005. Radio Broadband
will be an integral part of this total coverage solution.

The network pilots were conducted in Porthleven (Cornwall), Pwllheli
(Wales), Ballingry (Scotland) and Campsie (Northern Ireland).

Feedback on the trials was positive, with 73% of trialists extremely or very
satisfied with the product. 89% of those involved in the trial also
indicated that they would be interested in subscribing on a permanent basis.
It is likely that radio broadband will play a key part in addressing those
565 exchanges across the UK where ADSL is not commercially viable, working
with partners to provide the most cost effective technical solution.

"Radio broadband provides another innovative way for BT to provide
ADSL-equivalent services in areas where our wireline infrastructure cannot
reach," said Chet Patel, General Manager of Internet Access products at BT.
"Feedback from the trials was incredibly positive both in terms of ease of
use, and suitability for the job. Based on this, we're confident that the
product will begin to meet the needs of more remote broadband users, where
we are able to deploy this technology."

Do you know where that list of 565 exchanges is kept?
And are we able to view it?

http://www.samknows.com/broadband/league.php?status=2 keeps a list of the
"unviable" exchanges - though it currently has 569 listed for some reason
and not 565.
