Cambridge, February 10th 2005 — ip.access ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of TTP Communications Plc (LSE:TTC), today announces that it has signed a major new contract with Eurotel Praha, spol. s r.o., the largest mobile operator in the Czech Republic, to improve GSM in-building coverage and capacity across its network. The agreement follows a successful technical and commercial field trial of ip.access’ nanoGSM™ technology.

The roll-out of the system – ip.access’ first deployment in the Czech Republic – will enable Eurotel to provide rapid, cost-effective and targeted in-building coverage and capacity within key areas, such as offices and shopping centres. Based on ip.access’ nanoBTS™ picocell basestations, the solution will deliver enhanced service quality to important segments of Eurotel’s subscriber base, such as the corporate sector.

‘The improvement to in-building coverage that this solution delivers will make a major difference to our customers, particularly our corporate subscribers, who rely on their mobile phones as a vital business tool. ip.access’ technology gives us a cost effective way to extend our outdoor coverage levels indoors, mainly to new buildings whose construction materials obstruct signal penetration from outside,’ said Pavel Kolar, Chief Technical Officer, Eurotel Praha, spol. s r.o..

Stephen Mallinson, managing director, ip.access, added, ‘This key deployment by a leading operator is further proof that ip.access is uniquely placed to solve the real challenge of delivering better coverage and increased capacity in the indoor environment.’

The ip.access nanoBTS™ is a GSM picocell basestation that uses IP networks to deliver cellular voice and data services, in the smallest and most cost-effective package available today. Through the innovation of using IP as the backhaul medium, the nanoBTS™ provides coverage and capacity simply and efficiently. The nanoBTS™ is part of the ip.access nanoGSM™ solution, which allows network operators to boost mobile phone coverage in previously hard-to-reach areas, enabling new applications such as Wireless Office.
