Cubic Telecom to Roaming Travellers: "Don't Get Mad, Get Even"

Company Announces "Roaming Mad" Story Competition -- Consumers Win Vouchers for Stories About High Mobile Roaming Rates

CORK, IRELAND--(Marketwire - December 17, 2007) - Cubic Telecom, a leading provider of global-roaming solutions for the consumer and enterprise market, today announced a global competition for its growing consumer base. Consumers who send "horror stories" stories about high mobile phone roaming rates will automatically receive a EUR 5 voucher off a MAXroam SIM card. Cubic will award ten EUR 50 vouchers to consumers with the highest monthly roaming bills.

"Practically anyone who has travelled with a mobile phone has a story to tell," said Sean O'Mahony, Cubic Telecom's Chief Commercial Officer. "It's time we publicize those stories, and reward consumers for sharing them -- it will not only help us as a company, but help further educate the market on the problem we have set out to solve."

The competition comes at a time when Cubic is getting substantial validation for its own roaming solution. In a related announcement, Cubic announced that it will accelerate production of its popular MAXroam product, a universal SIM card that enables global travellers to get competitive local roaming rates for both incoming and outgoing calls in more than 160 countries.

"The MAXroam product -- the company's first -- has been a great success," said O'Mahony. "Not only are direct sales from our Web site going up weekly, but we have also received numerous inquiries from distribution partners who have the reach to bring MAXroam to the global marketplace."

"Roaming is a problem for many people around the world, and it's not just consumers," said Pat Phelan, Cubic Telecom's CEO. "It's a particularly serious problem for businesses in our increasingly global world. We like to think of MAXroam as a flat-world solution for a growing problem."
