    SolutionInc Provides Back-Office Management and Support Services for
    Aliant

    HALIFAX, Nov. 27 /CNW/ - SolutionInc Technologies Limited (TSX-VEN: STL)
announced today it will be working with Aliant to provide a turnkey solution
to manage and support Aliant Hotspots. Aliant is one of North America's
largest regional communications providers.
    The companies have signed a four-year contract, which is effective
immediately.
    "This is a significant milestone for SolutionInc and is indicative of the
successes we have built with Aliant over the last two-and-a-half years," says
SolutionInc President and CEO Glen Lavigne. "It is a compliment to our company
that Aliant, one of the most sophisticated corporate customers in the
telecommunications market, selected SolutionInc after doing an intensive
competitive analysis."
    According to ABI Research, the Wi-Fi hotspot market will grow by 25% in
2007 alone, resulting in 179,500 hotspots worldwide. As Wi-Fi hotspots
multiply and become more common for personal users, management and support are
required to ensure users experience seamless connections. SolutionInc provides
the system to register and bill users at the Aliant Hotspots, as well as
manages the service for Aliant. SolutionInc is also assisting in the set up of
the service at the venues.
    "Building on an established relationship with SolutionInc, we have been
able to realize new opportunities and new business models for Aliant Hotspots.
Over the next few years we will combine our skills to expand the Aliant
Hotspot service to more customers - providing them with even more value," says
Terry Finnigan, Director ISP, Aliant. "At the same time, we are empowering
local businesses with a new service to offer their patrons, at no cost to the
business."
