percent of business travelers access email and the Internet while on the
road. However, only 4.5 percent of US hotel properties have in-room high
speed Internet access.
Alert: Superclick Grows with High Speed
With installations in more than 50
hotels worldwide, Superclick Inc. (OTCBB:
SPCK) is emerging as a force to be reckoned with as the need for
high speed, modem and wireless Internet access across the nation's 65,000
(and nearly 225,000 globally) hotels grows exponentially.
We believe that Superclick
represents an extremely compelling situation with the products and potential
to become a major Internet access player in the hospitality, education
and multi-tenant unit (MTU) sectors. Accumulation is recommended in the
45-65 cent range.
Take a moment to read the enclosed
press release for details on Superclick's Wi-Fi deployment.
Globally--bet you didn't know this--there
are more than 220,000 hotels. I smell a major opportunity, simply because
it isn't a matter of 'if' hotels will offer high speed Internet access,
but how fast they can install it to remain competitive in the business
an interesting tidbit to make you the toast of your next office party:
there are more hotel rooms on the strip in Las Vegas than in southern California.
The market for Internet access in
the hospitality sector on which Superclick focuses is currently $4 billion
with projections to $6 billion by 2006. As well, the company has targeted
Internet access by the multi-tenant unit market, which currently has a
$3 billion value. Projections are that that market will grow to almost
$10 billion by 2005. The MTU sector includes--naming a few-- apartments,
schools and universities, retail spaces and business parks.

by offering remote monitoring and integrated reporting

customers' wireless networks
Customizable, scaleable and flexible
Another fact that puts Superclick
ahead of its competitors is its proprietary low speed modem solution. High-speed
access is fine, but the majority of users still utilize dial up access.
This situation is a problem for hotels as business travelers and other
guests tie up the hotel's PBX telephone system with dial up access calls.
By using Superclick's solution, hotels can offer dial up access, which
is instantly re-routed to SPCK's system, thereby freeing up more revenue-generating
phone lines in the hotel. In addition, Superclick supplies the hotel with
its proprietary billing solution to seamlessly capture the revenue. Dial
up access and billing are transparent to all parties.
By offering high speed, wireless
and low speed modem solutions, Superclick has the product mix to satisfy
the Internet access requirements of virtually any enterprise--whether hotel,
educational institution or MTU. All of which are being increasingly driven
into offering robust and scaleable Internet access both for competitive
reasons and, of course, as a new, ongoing revenue stream.
