News Release
November 25, 2002
Dear Customer,

JENS offers broadband connections with international roaming
beginning Monday, December 2,
for both business and personal use

Customers will be able to use broadband connections
with their existing user ID at Narita Airport and overseas

Beginning Monday, December 2, 2002, JENS Corporation will offer broadband connections with its international roaming service for users such as business users and overseas travelers. Available via Ethernet and wireless LAN, the service will be offered through both JENS Dialup IP Service, the company's Internet connection service for business use, and JENS SpinNet, its corresponding service for personal use.

The expansion of wireless LAN services in homes and offices has led to an increased demand for the same convenient access in hotels and public buildings. In response to this need, JENS Corporation is proud to partner with iPass Inc., the company's provider of international roaming services through dialup connections, to extend this service to the iPass network of broadband connections. With this service, customers can use the same user ID they regularly use in Japan to use broadband access overseas and at the Narita New Tokyo International Airport.

In North America and other regions, a growing number of airports and hotels now provide locations where wired or wireless broadband access is available, and the number of such "hot spots" is forecasted to grow in Asia and Europe as well. Using an iPass Connect Dialer, JENS customers can connect to these access points to use Internet services in a high speed broadband environment. The number of broadband access points in each region as of October 31, 2002 is given below.

Region Wired Wireless Total
North America 423 393 816
Other 63 0 63
