JAJAH Responds to Skype SOS

JAJAH Offers Alternative to Skype Users in Their Time of Need

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - August 17, 2007) - JAJAH, the world's most innovative communication company, is putting out the welcome mat to the millions of Skype users who are without service today. This is reportedly due to technical difficulties related to a software problem at the well-known VoIP provider.

"We want to get the word out that Skype users have an easy access alternative that they can use today," said JAJAH VP of Global Marketing, Don Thorson. "As fans of Skype since day one, we are confident they will quickly resolve these issues. In the meantime, we are asking Skype users to give JAJAH a try today. Since JAJAH is free to try out, there is absolutely nothing to lose."

While being a relative newcomer to the VoIP world, JAJAH has been gaining attention and millions of global users with its innovative voice 2.0 calling solution. JAJAH is similar to Skype, except that calls are initiated through the website, or from your smart phone and received on regular landline or mobile phones. It requires no downloads, no contract and no special equipment, not even headphones. To use JAJAH, simply go to the website and register. Registration is free, takes seconds and is without commitment.

To make a JAJAH call, you simply enter your number and the number of the person you want to call and click "CALL." JAJAH does the rest and rings both parties on their actual phones. Since the calls are made on regular phones, users don't need to be at their computers to talk.

With JAJAH, users are allowed 30 free minutes a day to other registered users. If the person you are calling is not registered, then calls cost about the same as Skype Out -- usually less than 3 cents a minute to the most called places in the world.

"Skype users who try out JAJAH will be surprised at the call quality and dependability," said Thorson. "We've been making investments in our technology and infrastructure and it's had a dramatic effect on call quality. Most of our users are reporting that a JAJAH call sounds as good or better than the same call dialed directly."
