Waymark Internet Acquires TICNET.Com's Subscriber Base

Waymark Communications continues its growth strategy.


ADDISON, TX (January 17, 2001) -- Waymark Internet, one of North Texas' leading Internet Service Providers, https://waymark.net today announced the acquisition of TICNET.Com, Inc's. (TICNET) subscriber base, http://www.ticnet.com. TICNET's individual and business subscribers will begin moving to Waymark's regional, high speed Internet services immediately.

"We are pleased to be able to serve TICNET subscribers with a high quality, dependable Internet service" said Mark Jones, President of Waymark. "We will ensure that TICNET's customers experience a fast and interruption-free move to our network. Waymark intends on providing enhanced services not currently available to TICNET subscribers including Waymark's Truespeed (tm) DSL in partnership with Southwestern Bell and Verizon. People today rely on the Internet as a personal and business productivity tool and need an Internet service they know they can depend upon. That's why we're committed to making this transition as smooth as possible for our new customers."

Mr. Jones further stated, "...at a time when other DSL providers have stumbled and many have filed for bankruptcy, Waymark's position in the marketplace is strong, with over 12,500 subscribers we are refining the critical mass to improve our service offerings. Waymark is preparing to launch an offering of the industry's most reliable HDSL technology, this high end corporate business solution will finally be an affordable and practical solution for small to medium sized businesses looking for speed and reliability without the limitations of traditional DSL offerings. And with no distance limitations, customers not previously eligible due to their distance from the central switching office may now qualify."

Dave DeGan, President of TICNET, commented "Our enthusiasm for this transaction is immense; the 'Can Do' attitude of the Waymark team confirms their commitment to serving our subscribers well. We made a solid choice in selecting Waymark over others. Our primary concern was the ability to improve and expand the Internet experience for our subscribers, we have accomplished that in this transaction."

Mr. DeGan also referred to the increasing need to invest in technology and the intense capital requirements to compete today as key elements in making the decision to sell to Waymark. He states, "This is an industry poised for continued aggressive growth. We need to be ready to offer our subscribers new and innovative technologies while maintaining core customer service levels not available from national ISP's. Waymark is well positioned to amass the subscriber base necessary to offer enhanced services while maintaining our commitment to service."

Waymark Communications, headquartered in Addison, Texas, is a telecommunications carrier providing a comprehensive array of network services integrating voice, data and remote networking solutions for residential and small- to mid-sized business customers.
