Belize Telemedia to Launch Two New Nortel Wireless Solutions

Belize – October 4, 2007- Belize Telemedia Limited, the leading telecommunications service provider in Belize, today announced that it has chosen Nortel [NYSE/TSX: NT], to replace and upgrade its existing GSM GPRS/Edge 850/1900 MHz wireless network, as well as implement a new CDMA/EVDO 450 MHz wireless network. These new wireless networks, scheduled for installation in the first quarter of 2008, will support the continuing growth in cellular customers in Belize, expand service coverage, and support the growing subscriber demand for high speed wireless data services, mobile Web browsing, e-mail and high-speed download of videos and graphics.

"With these new service delivery platforms, supplied and installed by Nortel, Belize Telemedia will further enhance its reputation for quality, and support a more advanced and comprehensive range of services," said Dean Boyce, Chairman of the Executive Committee at Belize Telemedia. "We are substantially bolstering our network and market leadership by improving the reach, reliability, performance and capabilities of our wireless infrastructure. Furthermore, with the implementation of the CDMA/EVDO platform, utilizing the 450 MHz frequency, we are directly targeting the provision of voice and high speed internet service for the more rural and remote locations in Belize, which in turn will act as a primary generator of growth for those local economies."

"We are benefiting from Nortel's excellent technology and extensive expertise in deploying GSM and CDMA networks to ensure we have an infrastructure that is able to meet the increasing demand for wireless voice and data services in Belize today, while also providing us with the capacity to continue to grow and expand our service offerings in the future," said Ediberto Tesucum, Director of the Board, Belize Telemedia.

"We're excited about working with Belize Telemedia to help them to enhance the communications experience of their subscribers with new, sophisticated wireless services," said Chris Braddy, Nortel Account Manager for Belize Telemedia. "Telemedia can count on our world-class technology and our 30-plus years of experience in deploying advanced, reliable networks in the Caribbean region to help them to successfully complete this and future projects."

"We deliver on our Business Made Simple promise by helping customers reduce the complexity and harness the opportunities posed by Hyperconnectivity, a trend which encompasses person-to-person communication, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine, in their business environments,” said Ray Bulengo, Vice-President, Carrier Sales, Caribbean and Bermuda, Nortel. “Belize Telemedia is a long standing and valued customer and we look forward to expanding this relationship, and to continue to work with them to evolve their networks, cost-effectively, so that they can provide an advanced range of services to their customers.”

Nortel has designed, deployed and launched more than 300 wireless networks in more than 50 countries around the world. Nortel was the first industry supplier to have wireless networks operating in all advanced radio technologies (GSM/GPRS/EDGE, CDMA2000 1X and EV-DO, UMTS and WLAN), and is the only end-to-end supplier of all new-generation wireless solutions.

Belize Telemedia Bridges Communications Gap in Rural Communities, Expands Coverage with Nortel Solutions
Solutions Give Subscribers Wireless Voice and Internet Connectivity
October 29, 2007: 06:00 AM EST

Belize Telemedia Limited, the leading telecommunications service provider in Belize, has announced it will expand its wireless coverage within the country, while also reaching new rural communities in Belize, by deploying Nortel wireless technology. The Nortel wireless technology will completely replace Belize Telemedia's current GSM infrastructure provided by a Nortel competitor, as well as deploy a new CDMA 450 MHz network, to support Telemedia's growing subscriber demand in Belize, and the demand for more advanced products and services across the entire country.

Telemedia's current wireless infrastructure will be upgraded to a Nortel GSM GPRS/EDGE 850/1900 MHz wireless network, which provides improved network coverage and connectivity for customers. Additionally, the operator will launch a completely new network based on Nortel CDMA 1xRTT and 1xEV-DO technologies in the 450 MHz spectrum, to extend services and help close the communications gap in rural communities.

"With these new Nortel technologies, Belize Telemedia will further enhance its reputation for quality, and support a more advanced and comprehensive range of services," said Dean Boyce, chairman of the executive committee at Belize Telemedia. "We are substantially bolstering our network and market leadership by improving the coverage, reliability, performance and capabilities of our wireless infrastructure. Also, with the implementation of the CDMA/EVDO platform, utilizing the 450 MHz frequency, we are providing voice and high-speed internet service for the more rural and remote locations in Belize, which in turn will act as a primary generator of growth for those local economies."

"Our promise to customers is to help make the complex, simple, by helping them harness the opportunities posed by Hyperconnectivity , a trend which encompasses person-to-person communication, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine, in their business environments," said Ray Bulengo, vice president, Carrier Sales, Caribbean and Bermuda, Nortel. "With this wireless infrastructure in place, Belize Telemedia can now take the lead in bridging the digital divide through offering affordable broadband wireless Internet services to users located in rural areas of Belize. We are pleased to continue a relationship spanning more than twenty years supplying a wide breadth of telecommunications solutions to Belize Telemedia."

Belize Telemedia's network replacement and upgrade also features Nortel's all-IP product line which includes a new Advanced Telecommunications Computing Architecture, Mobile Switching Center (MSC) Server and Home Location Register (HLR), enabling operators to support multiple services and applications on the same platform type. The new product line also includes high-density VoIP Media Gateways capable of supporting more subscribers with less equipment than traditional platforms at a significantly lower cost.
