CLIXME Prepared for European Debut, Click to Call Market Grows in the US

PROVIDENCE, RI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 26, 2006 -- VOIP5000, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VPFV), today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary CLIXME.COM has nearly completed work on its platform for a near term launch in the German Internet market. "As part of our new growth initiatives for the company, I feel that penetrating the growth available in the international market will give us a jump on our competition here in North America", said CEO Fotis Georgiadis. "Based on its 21% share of overall European Internet users, we've decided that Germany will be the springboard for our European launch," continued Mr. Georgiadis. According to (, the German market is expected to grow from 48 million users in 2005 to over 86 million users in 2006. The country has the largest population of Internet users among all European Union members.


Several different reports from companies like IDC and Forrester research are forecasting that the click to call market will grow to over $4 billion in North America alone. Although there are very little statistics to base the value of the international click to call market on, indicators such as Internet usage and increased growth in business usage of the Internet internationally point to favorable numbers.

"Since our May 1st launch, we watched much of our speculation about the need for a service like Clixme validated by the overwhelming interest in the service", said Mr. Georgiadis. "We feel that much of what we speculate to be true in the international market will be validated as well as we prepare for our European launch," he continued.

In other company news, work continues on the company's carrier class data center in Providence RI. It expects to bring the facility on line near to or by the end of August which in turn will cut costs and increase capacity to meet demand for the Clixme service. The facility benefits from the diversity of provider interconnects that are available there. "We have access to the backbones of every major US carrier in our new facility. Unless the Internet goes down as a whole, we'll still be able to fulfill click to call requests for our customers," said Mr. Georgiadis.
