ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, NJ, May 16, 2005 - Headquartered in Englewood Cliffs, NJ, Locus Telecommunications, an established, leading provider of prepaid services and a prepaid MVNO pioneer, today announced a national launch of its GSM wireless service. Locus is the first MVNO to offer this prepaid GSM service to independent distributors and dealers in major metro markets nationwide.

Ken Myers, Senior Director of Marketing at Locus, states, “As the first MVNO to offer prepaid GSM service to independent distributors nationwide, Locus has strengthened its leadership position of servicing distribution in key prepaid markets. By adding GSM to a portfolio that already includes TDMA and CDMA, we’re confident that our programs will continue to win over the loyalty of distributors and wireless customers nationwide.”

These newly launched services from Locus feature Unlimited Nights, an Exclusive Rewards Program, discounts on text messaging, free international long distance to over 50 countries including Mexico as well as free domestic long distance and rates as low as 9 cents.
