Traction, Growth Continues in Click-to-Call Market

Recent Acquisition, Traction Drives Momentum in Heated Industry

PROVIDENCE, RI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 21, 2006 -- VOIP5000, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VPFV) (FRANKFURT: VQC), a provider of click-to-call services under the Clixme name as well as other VOIP applications for online businesses, responded today to Art Technology Group's announced acquisition of click-to-call service provider eStara for $48 Million in cash and stock. VOIP5000 stated that the acquisition is an indicator of the burgeoning interest in click-to-call technology as a way for businesses to match the calling habits and lifestyles of the buying public.

Art Technology Group's announcement ( outlined the company's plans to incorporate eStara click-to-call, click-to-chat, and call-tracking technology within its software for online stores.

Click-to-call technology has been of particular interest to small and mid-sized retailers because it enables a low cost, reliable platform for customer service and sales.

"The ATG acquisition news only further validates our industry's message that click-to-call technology is a viable, necessary solution in today's online world," said VOIP5000 CEO Fotis Georgiadis. "Our click-to-call technology has seen significant response from the market and we expect the interest to continue."

Clixme, a division of VOIP5000, has been providing click-to-call technology since May 1, 2006 for Web sites around the country. The company's solution is easily scalable to fit any business, from small, single person operations to Fortune 500 companies, expanding its reach beyond many of its competitors.

Because calls are made using VOIP, per-minute charges are exceptionally low, enabling online retailers to easily and efficiently deploy the technology. In addition, click-to-call is the only solution on the market to offer a pay-per-use model with no initial overhead or fees, making it highly worthwhile for companies of all sizes.

The click-to-call industry heated up this past month after the announcement of eBay's partnership with Google, a deal that validated for many that click-to-call is the "next killer application" on the Internet.

"It's without question additional proof that the industry has a need for this type of technology," added Georgiadis.

Clixme, the only click-to-call service available through a publicly-traded company, is marketed through direct sales as well as its site on the World Wide Web. Additional Clixme offerings, including automatic alert and transaction processing services, are expected to be rolled out throughout the balance of 2006. For more information, visit
