Roadpost extends Iridium network quality guarantee

Iridium service provider eliminates purchasing risk for satellite phone customers

TORONTO, ON (February 21, 2007) -- Roadpost Inc., a leader in global satellite voice and data communications, announced today an industry exclusive extension on the Iridium Network Quality Guarantee. Announced February 15, 2007, the Iridium Network Quality Guarantee promises credits of up to 100 minutes of airtime, as well as three months free subscription fees, if the Iridium network fails to complete properly initiated voice calls from customers’ new Iridium handsets. As an Iridium service provider, Roadpost is extending the guarantee to include a full refund of the customer’s handset purchase price.

"As an Iridium service provider, Roadpost has always gone to great lengths to introduce innovative, customer-centric programs," said Greg Ewert, Executive Vice President for Iridium Satellite. "Now, Roadpost is reaffirming its commitment to customer service by supporting the Iridium Network Quality Guarantee and extending it with its own guarantee on the handset purchase."

Roadpost chose to support and extend the Iridium guarantee in an effort to provide the highest level of service to customers. Emergency first responders and organizations with workforces operating outside the reach of cellular networks face a potentially high risk if employees are unable to complete calls. The same is true for some recreational users like boaters or hikers. To operate safely, they depend on Roadpost to provide reliable equipment, tailor-made programs and 24 hour customer support.

"By guaranteeing the customer’s Iridium handset purchase along with the Iridium network guarantee, Roadpost eliminates virtually all of the customer’s purchase risk," said Morris Shawn, President and CEO of Roadpost. "Roadpost is the only Iridium service provider offering to back up Iridium’s network guarantee with a refund on the customer’s Iridium phone purchase if they are not satisfied."

If a customer is dissatisfied with the quality of Iridium’s network service within the first 90 days of service activation, the customer can submit a claim through Roadpost as their service provider. Valid claims will receive the airtime credits and free subscription fees offered in the Iridium guarantee, along with a refund from Roadpost on the purchase price of the handset.
