RAMTelecom Substantially Increases Market Share In Alberta Oil Sands



    OTTAWA, Aug. 29 /CNW/ - RAMTelecom Inc. (TSX-V:RTC), a satellite service
provider delivering flexible, scalable solutions for broadband data and voice
business communications, today announced a $1.3 million contract with one of
its premier resellers, TOG Systems Ltd, an Alberta based company, that
provides oil and gas clients with RAMTelecom's Linkstar(R) satellite and VoIP
service throughout Western Canada.
    "TOG will replace other satellite technologies in use today by
standardizing its client base on the RAMTelecom managed satellite service",
states Ralph Misener, CEO of RAMTelecom. "Their decision was based on the
combination of our ability to supply a consistent and reliable "carrier-grade"
service to support high quality VoIP along with the ongoing support from our
National Operations Center".
    Under the terms of the 36 month contract, RAMTelecom will work closely
with TOG over the next eight months as it completes the planned roll-out of
equipment installations at the customer sites. The network will primarily
support voice; however, secure data applications also fit into the operational
profile for every customer.
    "We have worked with RAMTelecom for the past year and have been very
pleased with their product and ongoing technical support", states Diane
Nordhagen, President of TOG Systems Ltd. "Their service has proven to
out-perform other satellite technologies, based on the quality and
reliability. Standardizing on the RAMTelecom solution will help retain clients
and expand our business throughout Western Canada".
