Radisson Worldgate Resort Teams Up With HotAir Network Group
for Wireless High-Speed Internet Access

Resort leverages wireless HSIA as an essential component
in winning a large government contract.

KISSIMMEE, FL - October 12, 2003 -- HotAir Network Group is pleased to announce that Radisson Worldgate Resort in Kissimmee, Florida has successfully implemented HotAir's wireless high-speed Internet access (HSIA) solution. Driftwood Hospitality Management LLC manages the Radisson Worldgate Resort, which features 600 spacious deluxe guest rooms and 11 conference rooms totaling 18,000 square feet of meeting space. HotAir has installed HSIA in half of the facility and expects to be awarded a contract to expand coverage in the future.

"We are so thrilled with our new HSIA system from HotAir. They recently installed the system during a quieter period at our hotel, and we had guests using it within hours of the final completion of the system. We fully expect usage of the system to skyrocket once we get into the busier spring season. The speed of the connection and convenience of HotAir's service make our system really stand out from many of our competitors," said Ted Whitehead, General Manager of Radisson Worldgate Resort.

HotAir supplies high-speed wireless coverage in select guest rooms, common areas and conference rooms, as well as their on-site restaurant, Savannah Bar and Grille. Every guest and conference attendee can easily connect to the Internet to check email, access web sites or connect to their corporate VPN.

Radisson Worldgate Resort is located just "one magical mile" from the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and minutes from Sea World, Universal Studios and all other Orlando attractions. The property recognized a high demand for HSIA by groups coming to the resort for meetings and recreational purposes. They were able to leverage wireless HSIA as an essential component in winning a large government contract and allowing them to host a three-week conference for program planning. HotAir offers unique benefits, such as short-term hardware leases, to allow the property to meet peak demands without purchasing large amounts of hardware.

"We've proven with a number of physically diverse and architecturally spread-out properties that we can completely cover a property seamlessly," said John Hogan, CTO of HotAir Network Group. "We have all heard the horror stories of people who visit vacation or resort areas who might find one spot in the room or on the pool deck that enables them to connect to the Internet. While this property has offered some challenges, we guarantee that every room provides the highest quality connection available."
