Dial Thru International Launches New Products for the Military Market Segment

Company's Three Fixed Rate Plans Designed to Cut Cost for Our Soldiers

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 15, 2005 -- Dial Thru International, Inc. (OTC BB: DTIX), a provider of Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) products and services, today announced it has launched its new VoIP service offering designed for members of the US Military. The three service plans, One Star, Two Star and Three Star, will offer the US military members a high quality product which utilizes the available broadband Internet connection. The pricing plans will provide significant savings compared to the cost of traditional telecommunications services. Each pricing plan includes unlimited calls to other Dial Thru VoIP customers, while the Two Star and Three Star plans provide for unlimited calls to the US and Canada.

"The US military market has over 30 million potential users, including Active Military personnel, Reserves and Veterans, as stated by Media Metrix in August, 2005. With this new product, our US Military customers will no longer have to monitor each phone call, concerned with the high cost of their phone bill. Our new service allows the soldiers to stay in touch with their family and friends as much as they choose without worrying about cost," said David Hess, President and COO of Dial Thru. "Our VoIP products have no geographic boundaries, so when the soldier signs up he/she will receive a local US phone number. This allows the soldier to make and receive calls as if they were at home, even if they are thousands of miles away in another country, such as Iraq, Germany or Japan," Mr. Hess further stated.

"We have been providing telephony services to members of the US military under the Rapid Link brand for seven years. Now, with our new product offerings, it will be much easier for the soldiers and their families to sign up and use our products anywhere in the world. This select market of over 30 million people, along with their friends and families, is one of the niche markets we specialize in that differentiates us from all the other carries in this VoIP market," said John Jenkins, the CEO of Dial Thru International.
