GrandCentral on Leading Edge of VoIP Technology

FREMONT, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 8, 2006 -- GrandCentral announced today that it has been named to FierceVoIP's annual Fierce15 list. This distinction honors GrandCentral as one of the top 15 companies on the cutting-edge of the constantly evolving VoIP industry. Winners, selected from amongst hundreds of organizations, demonstrated themselves to be "fierce" through their innovations in the marketplace.

FierceVoIP is a bi-weekly email newsletter distributed by FierceMarkets that covers news and insights on the emerging VoIP industry. "FierceVoIP congratulates GrandCentral on being named as one of the Fierce15," said Dan Rosenbaum, editor of FierceVoIP. "They're a pioneer in making VoIP a can't-miss value in the eyes of consumers."

"Voice communications has gotten out of control," said Craig Walker, CEO of GrandCentral. "People are either juggling too many phone numbers and voicemail boxes, or they are becoming overly reliant on their cell phones and getting interrupted too often with unimportant calls. GrandCentral taps into advanced VoIP technology to make sense of this mess. We give people the power to control how they are reached, where they are reached and by whom, without them ever having to switch phone carriers or devices. We are honored to be a part of the Fierce15, and excited about our potential to make a significant impact on the VoIP market."
