DSL.net Selected by Netkey to Accelerate Retail Kiosk Deployment

Leading DSL provider to team with leading provider of e-commerce kiosks

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - September 5, 2000 -- DSL.net, Inc. (NASDAQ: DSLN), a direct national provider of high-speed data communications and Internet solutions for businesses, today announced that it has been selected by Netkey, Inc. to provide broadband digital subscriber line (DSL) Internet access to Netkey customers deploying Internet kiosks.

Many retailers are interested in adopting Web kiosk technology for point of sale, loyalty programs, gift registries and other uses, yet do not have easy access to broadband network connectivity. Through the agreement with DSL.net, Netkey will now offer DSL.net's broadband Internet access services to its customers as a high-speed option for connecting an interactive kiosk with a company's network over the Internet, enhancing performance and system reliability.

"Companies today realize the importance of leveraging the Internet to expand their market presence," said David Struwas, president and chief executive officer of DSL.net. "The combination of the Netkey kiosk system and DSL.net's high-speed Internet connection will allow companies to provide customers with a quality interactive experience virtually anywhere."

DSL.net provides a business-class DSL service that offers an "always on" broadband connection to the Internet. DSL.net's dedicated high-performance network, direct-to-customer sales and support model, and broad national footprint make it a key partner to leading solution providers who are looking to offer on-line applications and services to businesses. The agreement with Netkey is part of DSL.net's strategy of continually adding distribution channels through partnerships with online e-commerce businesses, whose customers need reliable and affordable broadband connectivity and services.

"Our customers need to extend their market reach beyond the storefront," said Alex Richardson, chief executive officer of Netkey. "If leading businesses want their content available anywhere, anytime, then Netkey needs to be able to offer our technology with reliable, best-of-class broadband access. DSL.net's national presence and strong business focus make them the ideal choice to be our partner for Netkey kiosk solutions."
