BOCA RATON, Fla., Feb. 1, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Juniper Group, Inc. (OTCBB:JUNP), a growing national supporter to wireless telecommunication companies, reported today that its revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 increased to approximately $2,080,000, as compared to $212,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2009. Although revenues in the third quarter were not as strong as the first half of the year, we were still able to grow the company. The overall increase in revenue was a direct result of the company's wholly owned telecommunications subsidiary devoting all of its resources to building its wireless infrastructure services business.

  Nine Months Ended September 30,
  2010   2009
Revenues $2,080,000   $212,000

This positive chapter in Juniper Group's growth is occurring at the same time the wireless sector fundamentals are strong with the major telecommunication companies gearing up 4G, the next level of communication.  In his recent State of the Union Address, President Barack Obama pledged to expand access to mobile broadband services to nearly all U.S. residents. "Within the next five years, we'll make it possible for businesses to deploy the next generation of high-speed wireless coverage to 98 percent of all Americans," he said. "This isn't about faster Internet or fewer dropped calls. It's about connecting every part of America to the digital age."

President Obama said that access to high-speed wireless Internet services could not only help rural farmers and small business owners better sell their products but also help first responders cope with emergency situations and improve education and healthcare.

Vonya McCann, Sprint's government affairs executive said the company "commends President Obama for his leadership in promoting nationwide access to advanced wireless services and working to ensure that our nation's first responders get what they have long needed and deserved, wireless interoperable public safety broadband services."

Vlado P. Hreljanovic, President and CEO, said, "This initiative bodes well for companies like Juniper who provide infrastructure service support to the leading wireless telecommunications companies in providing them with maintenance and upgrading of wireless telecommunication network sites, site acquisitions, tower construction and antenna installation to tower system integration, hardware and software installations."
