JAJAH Selected to Provide Yahoo! Premium Voice Service

Strategic Partnership Delivers Unbeatable Voice Capabilities for 97 Million Yahoo! Messenger Users

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - April 29, 2008) - JAJAH, the world's most innovative global communications company, has been selected by Yahoo! as the outsource partner for its premium voice service. The "Phone In" and "Phone Out" service will enable consumers to make high-quality, low-cost PC-to-phone and phone-to-PC voice calls over the JAJAH network to more than 200 countries using Yahoo! Messenger, the leading instant messenger application in the United States with nearly 97 million users worldwide (comScore, February 2008).

The partnership leverages JAJAH's open, next-generation communications platform to support the existing Yahoo! Messenger voice offering beginning in the third quarter of this year. Through this collaboration and managed service offerings, JAJAH will provide Yahoo! Messenger users with an instant Internet telephony network, merging the best of traditional and IP telephony.

"The seamless integration of web and voice interaction is clearly important to our strategic partner, Yahoo!," said Trevor Healy, JAJAH CEO. "We are honored to be selected by Yahoo! to meet their voice needs. Through this relationship, we have the opportunity to extend our innovative global calling services with an industry leader that can leverage the power of our platform and network."

"This partnership with JAJAH will help Yahoo! continue to provide a great communication experience to our millions of Yahoo! Messenger users," said Sabrina Ellis, vice president of Yahoo! Messenger. "Yahoo! Messenger is one of the first communication tools consumers see and use when they turn on their computers, so it is critical that our partner mirror our commitment to our users, and JAJAH's reliable VoIP network and proven customer- and carrier-friendly experience make it an ideal solution."

Since 2006, Yahoo! Messenger users have been able to use "Phone In" and "Phone Out" to make and receive voice calls on their PC to and from landline and mobile phones. With low rates and premium voice quality, users can talk for hours and save on their phone bill. This deal means JAJAH will take over the provision of the telephony infrastructure, payment processing, and customer care for Yahoo!'s premium voice users who make and receive voice calls through Yahoo! Messenger.
