July 14, 2009 - Growing list of customer wins and product certifications bolster company’s wideband leadership status

ENGLEWOOD, CO—(Marketwire - July 14, 2009) - Midcontinent Communications announced that they have selected Ubee Interactive to be the primary supplier of DOCSIS 3.0 (Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification) products for their deployment of wideband services. Using Ubee DOCSIS 3.0 modems and wireless routers, Midcontinent’s MidcoNet Ultimate tier for residential customers and Advanced Package for commercial customers will offer download speeds of up to 50 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 5 Mbps.

“Bandwidth consumption has increased dramatically, and we expect that trend to continue,” said Jon Pederson, Midcontinent’s Vice President of Technology. “Knowing that, we are partnering with world-class companies like Ubee Interactive to future-proof our network. “Midcontinent is the leading provider of video, data, and voice services in the north-central U.S, with over 200,000 customers in 240 communities.”

Midcontinent’s launch is significant to both Ubee and to the market,” said Maria Popo, President of Ubee/Americas, noting that DOCSIS 3.0 adoption had previously been confined to larger cable operators. “Their commitment demonstrates that wideband has gone main stream.”

In addition to Midcontinent, Ubee’s DOCSIS 3.0 products are being widely deployed by cable operators in the United States, Europe, and the United Kingdom. Ubee is also the sole supplier to the world’s largest wideband deployment at SK Broadband (formerly Hanaro Telecom) in Korea, with over 1 million channel-bonded modems deployed to-date.

In further support of DOCSIS 3.0, Ubee announced that their model DDW3600 wireless router was recently awarded DOCSIS 3.0 certification by CableLabs® (Certification Wave 67). The DDW3600 is Ubee’s first North American wireless product that supports the 802.11n Wi-Fi protocol, delivering unprecedented wireless bandwidth, range, and robustness. With the addition of the DDW3600, Ubee now boasts an industry-leading DOCSIS 3.0 portfolio of three (3) CableLabs-certified models, and one (1) EuroDOCSISTM-certified product.

“Our leadership in wideband is by design,” explained Ubee’s Popo. “Field experience and production volume translates directly into customer value.”
