Axcera and Netcom Africa have jointly announced that Netcom's 3G mobile broadband wireless service offering, using the IPWireless TD-CDMA-based Axity3G non-line-of-site (NLOS) broadband wireless access solution, will become commercially available in July 2005.

Initial coverage of the urban centers within Lagos, Nigeria's most populated state, beginning in mid-July, will be soon followed by roll-outs in other key markets, including Port Harcourt, Kano and Abuja, the nation's capital. The system will cover a total population of over 15 million, making it one of the largest broadband wireless deployments of its kind in Africa.

The service offering, branded MyNetcom, will be available to the end user both directly through Netcom and through the company's exclusive network of resellers, with a limited number of modems being made available in mid-July for those wishing to be among the first to subscribe to the service.

Pursuant to its goal of bringing broadband access to the African population, upon completion of the nationwide Nigeria build-out Netcom plans to broaden its reach with expansion into various other African countries.

According to David Neff, president and chief executive officer of Axcera, "The launch of this initial service offering is the first step in bringing affordable, reliable broadband wireless access to Nigeria. Axcera is excited to continue its relationship with Netcom to complete the nationwide Nigerian build-out on schedule and to continue implementing systems throughout Africa."
