BlueKite's bandwidth optimisation software becomes an integral part of
Telfort's GPRS offering


LONDON - January 29, 2001 - BlueKite.com, a leading mobile Internet
software provider, has been chosen as a supplier to Telfort, a major
telecommunications operator in The Netherlands. BlueKite's software will
be incorporated into Telfort's GPRS solutions for high-speed wireless Web
access.

The contract will allow mobile users to access intranet and Internet
applications via Telfort's mobile network at speeds equivalent to or
better than 56kbps fixed-line connections. BlueKite's DataReduxion
technology significantly increases wireless Web browsing speeds, and also
maximizes network efficiency by reducing the amount of data transmitted
over valuable wireless spectrum.

As the first Dutch operator to demonstrate GPRS on a live network, Telfort
is offering the BlueKite-enabled service to business customers who need to
access information anytime, anywhere. BlueKite's software overcomes some
of the key limitations for mobile Internet access by allowing faster
downloads and improved performance.

Jan Wiejak, BlueKite Managing Director, Europe, said: "Telfort is a great
example of a GSM operator committed to delivering innovative GPRS
solutions to its customers, and we are delighted to be associated with
this provider. By combining BlueKite's software with Telfort's GPRS
services, Telfort customers will enjoy the real benefits of the mobile
Internet for the first time. As Telfort has shown, BlueKite is delivering
solutions right now, with a firm focus on supporting those GPRS rollouts."

Wiejak continued: "Clearly, as the roll out of the GPRS market gains
momentum across Europe during 2001, BlueKite will continue to be at the
forefront and develop its software to support the operator community and
enhance the wireless Web experience for the user."

Telfort joins a growing list of operators utilising BlueKite's software
platform. Most recently, BlueKite expanded its relationship with BT
Cellnet in the UK to provide wireless Web optimisation for theirGPRS
services.
