Dial Thru International Launches Additional Voice Over IP Service

New Rapid Link Router Provides All-in-One Phone and Fax Line; Initial Customer Response Has Been Strong

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 28, 2005 -- Dial Thru International (OTC BB: DTIX) today announced that it has launched its Rapid Link Router, which gives any business or residential customer a phone line and fax line in an integrated format. With the Rapid Link Router, users can make calls and fax documents anywhere in the U.S. and Canada for one low price.

The Company offers this service through the Rapid Link Router, a small box the size of a wallet that plugs directly into an Internet connection and then plugs into any standard analog phone that exists in a home or office and any analog facsimile machine. The Rapid Link Router will work on DSL, Cable modems and any other high-speed Internet connection.

The Rapid Link Router package is perfect for any small to medium-size business as the total setup cost is usually less then the price of a single standard phone line from your local exchange carrier. By just plugging a standard cordless base station (with its adjoining cordless phones) into the router, a user has a complete phone system tied into the Rapid Link Router, permitting unlimited calls to the U.S. and Canada. By plugging a fax machine into the second phone port on the Rapid Link Router, a user has a complete office setup for one low monthly price. The Rapid Link Router also comes with very low international rates to the rest of the world.

"This product is one that we are most proud of," said John Jenkins, Dial Thru's CEO. "Like many of our customers, we started Dial Thru International in a home office. As a consumer ourselves, the type of convenience that this product offers would have been of tremendous benefit to us. We needed a system that offered us both phone and fax lines, yet was inexpensive. We also had to have the features and quality of any standard business line. With the Rapid Link Router, businesses and residential customers receive this. Early response to the product from test customers has been excellent. We intend to market this exciting product to our customers throughout the world as quickly as possible."
