Alternet Systems/TekVoice Communications Merger Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 17, 2007) - Alternet Systems Inc. (OTCBB:ASYI), announces that the merger with TekVoice Communications, Inc., is continuing. TekVoice is currently completing their audited financial statements and the merger is anticipated to complete on or before August 15 2007.

TekVoice is a telecommunications services company based in Miami Florida, with operations in North and South America. TekVoice's revenues exceeded $3 million in 2006 and the Company is forecasting significant growth in 2007.

The combined entity will be called Alternet Systems Inc. and will provide wireless broadband Internet, local and long-distance telecom and Internet management solutions for schools and health facilities throughout Latin America.
