JAJAH Slashes Phone Rates for U.S. Calls to India

As a Service to the Indian Expatriate Community, JAJAH Reduces Rates to as Little as 8.97 Cents per Minute

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 8, 2007 -- JAJAH formally announced today that it has dramatically reduced phone rates for calls to India from the United States and the U.K. Using JAJAH, one the most innovative global phone services, callers can connect with India at rates as low as 8.97 cents per minute (UK: 4,7p). The new rates became effective on New Year's Day, and JAJAH is now announcing them to the growing community of consumers who are using JAJAH to stay connected with family in India.

"This is a service to the Indian expatriate community which has been helping to spread the word about JAJAH, " said Roman Scharf, co-founder of JAJAH. "With the new rates, it will be easier for them to stay in touch with their families."

"Calling India from the U.S. has never been cheaper," said Venkat Ganesan, an investor and board member at JAJAH. Ganesan uses JAJAH to call family in India.

At the same time, JAJAH has reduced its rates to more than 200 other worldwide destinations, and has added more countries to its unique global free-calling zone. "Our vision is to bring free calling to as many countries as possible," said Scharf. "That vision is the principle driver behind our business strategies."
