CAIS Internet to Introduce `CAIS Software Solutions'
Will Rename Atcom, Inc. as CAIS Division to Complete Acquisition

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 10, 1999--CAIS Internet, Inc. (Nasdaq:CAIS - news) -- a leading service provider of innovative high speed Internet access solutions -- announced today that it has completed a merger with ATCOM Inc.

As part of the merger, Atcom will be re-named CAIS Software Solutions, a wholly owned subsidiary of CAIS Internet.

The deal marks a milestone for the hospitality industry and multi-family facilities that seek a comprehensive solution to Internet access for their properties. Customers benefit from the combined bandwidth capabilities and pioneering Overvoice® technology of CAIS Internet with the leading edge IPORT broadband Internet access technology of the former Atcom Inc.

The result is an industry-dominating end-to-end solution that offers convenient high speed Internet access combined with Plug `N Play automatic provisioning, automatic billing, credit card authorization, Quality of Service and other leading edge features of IPORT. CAIS Software Solutions also extends CAIS Internet's reach into public areas with its award winning Internet Kiosk Software.

``We're excited at the opportunity to combine forces,'' says Steve Nye, President of CAIS Software Solutions. ``With CAIS bandwidth, integration experience in the hospitality industry and breakthrough OverVoice® technology, our opportunities are greatly expanded. Our division provides key features to make the CAIS Internet solution an unbeatable one for hotels, multi-family units and all public venues including airports, retail centers and cruise ships. This merger completes the `Internet Everywhere(tm)' focus of the companies.''

The IPORT server provides CAIS-equipped buildings with Internet access connection functionality, payment processing including interface with hotel management systems, advertising and e-commerce and variable data bit rate options.

In addition, IPORT has industry-leading features including IP-based secure tunneling for corporate intranet access, printing capability and booth and kiosk platforms for Internet access in public areas. The integration of the CAIS high speed solution with IPORT will provide a consistent, simple interface for the customer or end-user.
