LEUVEN, Belgium and MINNEAPOLIS, US - March 24, 2010 - GetWireless, a national distributor of cellular-based solutions, today announced a North American distribution agreement with Option (EURONEXT Brussels: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY), a global leader in wireless broadband technology. GetWireless will now be a premier North American distributor for Option's GlobeSurfer® III broadband router and the iCON® 452 USB modem, some of the first products of their kind to operate on the AWS frequency band in the United States.

The GlobeSurfer III, a broadband router with Wi-Fi and voice, and the iCON 452, a high-end USB-modem offering worldwide connectivity, are welcome additions to the GetWireless product suite.
