Dial Thru International Launches New Voice Over IP Service

Rapid Link VoIP Allows Global Telephone Number Portability

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 30, 2005 -- Dial Thru International (OTC BB: DTIX) today announced that it has launched Rapid Link VoIP, which allows business or residential customers to take a telephone number anywhere in the world. With Rapid Link VoIP, users can make calls without having to pay the high prices of cellular or traditional long distance service.

The Company offers the service through Rapid Link Executel, which is a portable handset that attaches to a laptop which allows a user to carry the same phone number at the same low cost as if he or she was in the home office, regardless of where a call is placed or received worldwide. Rapid Link Executel phones are small enough to fit in any laptop carrying case and can be employed anywhere an Internet connection is available.

The Company now offers services for both residential and business customers. Residential customers may either elect the Basic Service for $9.95 per month, which allows for unlimited inbound calling and outbound calls for just $0.039 per minute, or the Enhanced Service for $24.95 per month, which allows for unlimited inbound and outbound calls. Business customers may elect the Basic Service for $19.95, or the Enhance Service for $29.95.

"We continue to offer innovative products to our customers," said Dial Thru's CEO, John Jenkins.
