5G Wireless Solutions Announces Equipment Deal with Paymaster Nigeria -- 5G Base Stations Will Create CityWide Infrastructure for Wireless Financial Transactions

MARINA DEL REY, Calif. – Oct. 5, 2005 – 5G Wireless Solutions, Inc., an emerging leader in the wireless broadband industry and a wholly-owned portfolio company of 5G Wireless Communications, Inc. (OTCBB:FGWC - News), a business development company, announced today that it will be providing a CW-WAN(TM) (CityWide Wide Area Network) equipment package to create an infrastructure for credit card payment processing in Nigeria.

The purchase was arranged through Polestar, one of 5G's channel marketing partners, on behalf of Paymaster, a payment processing organization currently offering its services to financial and retail customers throughout W. Africa. The 5G wireless network will provide high-speed connectivity for point-of-sale credit card authentication and verification terminals already in use by a wide variety of shops, restaurants, banks and other consumer outlets.

"We are pleased to have this as our second deployment in what should be an ongoing series of installations throughout this rapidly growing nation," stated Jerry Dix, 5G Wireless Communications' CEO. "Our equipment was selected on the basis of a successfully demonstrated proof of concept, cost efficiency, high security standard and ease of installation and deployment."

"This deployment is the result of a prolonged appraisal process, where 5G excelled over other manufacturers at every stage in the evaluation," added Obasi Uba Obasi, Jr., CEO of Polestar, based in Port Harcourt, Nigeria. "The fact that so little hardware is required to provide such blanket coverage over large geographical areas, coupled with stringent security measures, was absolutely key."
