GoIP's GO800 Completes Survey

90% Would Rather Use Text Than a Phone Number

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 10, 2011) - GoIP Global, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: GOIG) announced today the completion of its initial survey of GO800 users. The study was created in order to evaluate usage and attitudes towards this unique new service which allows you to text a Voice Keyword to G0800 in order to connect with an advertiser or corporate client.

The Survey was conducted through the facilities of Central Marketing Inc. of New York City, and was based on 206 completed interviews with male and female adults who had recently contacted GoIP Global for information, using the Voice Keyword methodology.

The study initially discovered that 96% of all respondents felt that using the GO800 Voice Keyword made it "easier" than using a phone number (i.e. 800 numbers) in order to reach a company. And 80% described it as being "Much easier!"

A large group, some 91% of respondents, felt that they would still be likely to remember the GO800 Voice Keyword the next time they attempted to reach GoIP Global.

Among these respondents, a vast majority, 90%, said that they would prefer to use a Voice Keyword rather than a phone number in order to contact companies, or even friends, when using their cell phones.

Contrary to popular belief, it is not only younger people (teens, etc.) who are using cell phones to text messages to others. The study found that 71% of users of the GO800 service were 30 years of age or over, versus 28% who were under the age of 30.

The study was conducted during the last week of November, 2010.
