Click to Call Growth Accelerating Worldwide

PROVIDENCE, RI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 31, 2006 -- VOIP5000, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VPFV) (FRANKFURT: VQC.F) today announced that it sees growth accelerating in the demand for Click to Call services worldwide. "Our CLIXME subsidiary is being flooded with calls from website owners in countries all over the world inquiring about how they can get CLIXME on their websites," said CEO Fotis Georgiadis. "We see the number of requests accelerating month over month," he continued.

Anthony Noto at Goldman Sachs, stated in his report ( ) that ''local merchants value a phone call much more highly than a visit to a web site.'' His research also found that conversion rates from a call are in the 56%-75% range. Compared to conversion rates in the 1%-3% range for normal web traffic, these statistics re-enforce the fact that Click to Call ''could be the killer application for online local advertising,'' according to Noto. Mr. Noto was not commenting on our CLIXME service in particular.

The company's CLIXME service provides a Click to Call platform for websites to communicate with their customers using land-line telephones. It is public knowledge that the Click to Call platform Google intends to launch is provided purely through its adsense program (see This means that businesses wishing to use Google's service are forced to use Google's advertising program. Even worse, the service only works when their visitors see their ads on Google searches. ''People have asked us to compare ourselves to the Google service several times,'' said Fotis Georgiadis. He continued, ''It's not the same thing, CLIXME is always available on your company's website it doesn't get turned off with your Google ads. By providing the service at the website level, the vendor provides the benefit to all customers visiting the site, no matter what advertising method delivered them to the site."

A recent eMarketer study ( ) stated the market value will crest at $300 billion. With companies like Skype reaching over 100 million VOIP users ( /), it is becoming clear why this industry is getting so much attention. Skype just recently agreed to pay around $27 million in stock for Sonorit Holding SA, a provider of voice technology for the Internet. ''The landscape is forming quickly, and the larger players are coming in to swallow the niche technologies,'' said Mr. Georgiadis.
