IPtimize Agrees to First Major Acquisition and Provides Pro Forma Full Year 2007 Revenue Guidance

Acquisition Could Grow Year End 2007 Revenue Run-Rate to Approximately $9.2 Million

Announcement Ushers in Potential High Growth-Through-Consolidation Future

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - September 4, 2007) - IPtimize, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: IPZE) ("IPtimize" or the "Company"), a broadband voice and data service provider, announced today that it has initiated its strategy to aggregate and optimize undervalued broadband services by agreeing to acquire WTI, LLC ("WTI"), a privately owned Washington limited liability corporation. WTI is an operating competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) in the States of Washington and Oregon and serves approximately 8,200 customers.

WTI reported 2006 revenue of approximately $7.0 million. IPtimize expects WTI to record approximately $8.0 million in revenue in 2007; once completed, the acquisition could grow the Company's year end revenue run-rate from approximately $1.0 million to approximately $9.0 million -- an 800% increase.

In even more dramatic fashion, WTI's approximately 8,200 customers served will grow IPtimize's total customer base from 250 to 8,445, a 3,278% increase.

"The WTI acquisition is the first of many major milestones we intend to achieve and report in the coming months," stated IPtimize President Clint Wilson. "This significant addition, combined with our established broadband voice and data service, forms the optimal platform upon which to grow quickly through strategic acquisition. As a public company with increasingly national presence and economies of scale, IPtimize seeks to purchase regional providers to rapidly grow revenue and achieve multiples consistent with our comparable peer group. The WTI acquisition marks the launching point for IPtimize as we begin to create real and immediate shareholder value."

IPtimize will acquire WTI through a combination of cash and restricted common stock.
