with Wipro Net Ltd., the Internet Services Provider (ISP) arm of Wipro

Corporation for providing streaming services to its customers in India and

South-East. Speedera provides integrated streaming media, Web content delivery,

Networks' streaming expertise, coupled with Wipro Net's Internet based

communication services in 32 cities (plus three data centers in Mumbai,

Bangalore and Delhi), this partnership uniquely positions Wipro Net to be the

leading streaming services provider in India.

Speedera's global network reach includes points of presence in the Americas,

Europe and Asia, including multiple points of presence in India's major cities.

Speedera vice president of international sales, Abhay Dubey, added. "It

is one thing to say, you offer streaming services and another to be able to do

it consistently, reliably and with high quality. We've developed a global

network infrastructure that builds on our Global Traffic Management platform,

enabling the level of service that Wipro Net customers have come to expect.

Working with Wipro Net is a major success for us and we look to this region to

be a strategic market for us as we move forward."

user growth per capita expected to rocket to 461 per cent during the period

2000-2005, according to Computer Industry Almanac, Inc. During the same period,

computers per capita in India will grow at a rate significantly faster than
