Wisconsin carrier will offer ClearSky's full set of wireless data services to subscribers on its new UMTS network.

Moreover, with over 10 years of WAP, MMS, and content delivery experience, ClearSky will enrich our customers' experience, help us maintain our competitive advantage, and increase revenue growth.

ClearSky Mobile Media, Inc., a leading provider of managed services and content to wireless carriers, today announced a new long-term contract with CTC Telcom to deploy its full suite of content and data services. CTC Telcom, launched in 1996 as one of the first facilities-based CLECs, provides phone, cable, internet, and wireless services to business and residential customers in western Wisconsin.

The terms of this agreement call for CTC Telcom to deploy ClearSky's complete, end-to-end solution that includes hosted WAP and MMS-C service, along with ProPortalTM, ProVantageTM, ProVisionTM, ProConfigTM and RevShare integrated support systems. Taken together these products and services will enable CTC Telcom to grow its wireless customer base by offering access to the mobile web, multi-media messaging, and downloadable content.

"As we add wireless services to complete our quad-play offering, we searched for an organization experienced in mobile data services. ClearSky's hosted platform enabled us to very quickly provide our subscribers these value-added features without a large initial capital investment," said Mark Reams, CTC Telcom's commercial operations officer. "Moreover, with over 10 years of WAP, MMS, and content delivery experience, ClearSky will enrich our customers' experience, help us maintain our competitive advantage, and increase revenue growth."

"The addition of CTC Telcom, a leading rural wireless provider, validates ClearSky's revenue share pricing as a model that works for both large and small carriers alike," said ClearSky executive vice president of sales, Tony Tagliareni. "We look forward to working closely with CTC Telcom to maximize their customer loyalty and data ARPU."
