30 June 2003 Madrid Lightwave Europe--LambdaNet Spain is to reduce the network footprint of its largest customer in Spain, Iberbanda.

30 June 2003 Madrid--LambdaNet Spain, the independent operating subsidiary of European network services provider, LambdaNet Communications, is to reduce the network footprint of its largest customer in Spain, Iberbanda.

LambdaNet says the deal will enable Iberbanda to operate more efficiently following recent changes in customer demand.

The agreement is in line with LambdaNet's policy to keep operational costs to a minimum and runs parallel with existing streamlining activity by LambdaNet in Spain. It marks an important milestone in current restructuring discussions with LNG Holdings S.A. and RENFE, the two principal creditors of LambdaNet Spain.

"Given this agreement with Iberbanda, and in light of the current discussions with RENFE, we believe we are on track to complete the restructuring of our Spanish business and emerge with a strong presence in the Iberian market," said Bernie Smedley, CEO of LNG Holdings S.A., the parent company of LambdaNet Spain.

The commercial agreement is strictly between LambdaNet Spain and Iberbanda and does not affect the LambdaNet networks in Germany or France. All subsidiaries and their respective networks are managed as independent businesses.

LNG Holdings SA
LNG Holdings S.A. has its headquarters in Luxembourg. The company � including its Hannover-based LambdaNet Group � employs approximately 250 people in Europe, with the majority of employees in Germany, France and Spain.
