Digerati Expands Its Network Coverage With Broadvox

SAN ANTONIO, TX--(Marketwire - May 19, 2011) - Digerati Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: DTGI) (OTCQB: DTGI), a global provider of cloud communication services, today announced the Company has entered into an agreement with Broadvox, a worldwide leader in providing managed VoIP services. The Broadvox IP network carries more than 15 billion minutes of traffic annually, powering 300 telecommunication carriers, local exchange carriers, ISPs, and next generation carriers. This interconnection agreement will provide Digerati with nationwide access to a robust IP network with 90 points of presence and major switching centers in Dallas, New York, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Denver, Miami, and Seattle.

Digerati will utilize the Broadvox network to scale its U.S. network more effectively, and increase the number of distribution interconnection points for its domestic VoIP network without incurring additional capital costs.

Ken Ryon, Senior Vice President of Engineering for Digerati, commented, "This network agreement greatly complements our existing global network and allows Digerati to access Broadvox's expanding network of interconnected local service providers. This addition to our cloud based platform expands our local number portability coverage to nearly 12,000 rate centers across the United States and Canada. Besides expanding our area of coverage, this addition to our routing table allows us to lower our costs of local rate center termination, thereby improving the competitiveness of our product offerings to our North American value added resellers and direct customers."
