SchoolWeb Installed in Burnaby School District

VANCOUVER, B.C., April 10 2003 (PRIMEZONE) -- Alternet Systems Inc. (OTC BB:ASYI.OB - News) announces that it has completed installation of SchoolWeb(tm) in Burnaby School District, located near Vancouver, B.C., Canada. Burnaby School District has 52 schools with an enrollment of 25,000 students.

SchoolWeb(tm) is a high-speed Internet access system that solves a problem common to most schools in North America: extremely slow access to the Internet. This prevents teachers from using the Internet for teaching and students from using the 'Net for research at school.

Reliable, super-fast access to Web pages is achieved by SchoolWeb's sophisticated Linux-based caching software and unique system architecture.

Additional features of SchoolWeb(tm) include: e-mail for every student and teacher; streaming video; firewall protection; and all network services. Rural and remote schools can receive high-speed Internet through SchoolWeb's 2-way satellite option.

SchoolWeb(tm) is a Hewlett Packard Solution Partner Product and is currently operating in 75 schools in Canada. Alternet has signed a distribution agreement with MicroAge, a national distributor of computer systems in Canada.

There are over 140,000 public and private schools in the U.S. and Canada.

Alternet Systems Inc. is also a leading provider of high-speed Internet access systems for rural and remote communities. Alternet ISP products CommunityWeb and InterLink deliver high-speed Internet access to these communities at an affordable price.
