Company Press Release

North American DataCom Announces Bandwidth Agreement

IUKA, Miss.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 25, 2002--North American DataCom, Inc. (OTCBB:NADA - news) announced today the purchase of bandwidth through December 2003 and the sale of 505 miles of fiber optic conduit. These transactions are in support of the Company's revised Business Plan. The revised Plan, which was approved by the Board last week, focuses on immediate revenue growth and immediate reduction of investment and expenses associated with delayed broadband infrastructure development. The Company's current broadband facilities of approximately 500 megabytes per second can support its application service business until the larger network is completed.

The wireless bandwidth was acquired from Corban Communications in exchange for approximately 2.7 million shares of NADA restricted common stock. This transaction is valued at $377,622. Also, the Company entered into a transaction with Qwest Communications to exchange its 505 miles of conduit from New Orleans to Jacksonville, FL for $15.12 million of current liabilities. The Company realizes $721,109 of non-operating income from this transaction that will be reported in its third quarter 10Q. Management believes that the exchange of current debt for the conduit asset has a beneficial impact on its financial condition and balance sheet.

Robert R. Crawford, chief executive officer of North American DataCom stated, ``While our goal continues to be development of a state-of-the-art broadband network in the underserved southeast, the current capital marketplace forced us to continually reevaluate our plans. It seems prudent to reduce our investment at this time.'' The capital budget over the next 9 months for the interim bandwidth network, the EDS business and the Global PTX business has been reduced to $5 million. The Company expects its 9-month results to show a continuing trend of higher revenues and reduced expenses supporting the revised plan.

As stated in earlier releases, the Company has redirected its focus to shorter-term goals emphasizing immediate revenues. These revenues are being developed through the expansion of application services (such as provided by Global PTX), the development of its data storage (EDS) services and the marketing of broadband services throughout the rural south and elsewhere. These three services are global in scope and provide tremendous opportunities for immediate revenue growth. The Company plans to develop these services throughout the global economy.
