Melaleuca Signs With VoX Communications

Company Will Initially Market VoX Digital Voice Services in Puerto Rico to Its Large Base of Preferred Customers

CELEBRATION, FL--(Marketwire - September 19, 2007) - VoX Communications Corp., eLEC Communications Corp.'s (OTCBB: ELEC) provider of SIP-based Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) solutions for service providers and consumers worldwide, today announced that Melaleuca, Inc. will begin selling its Internet telephone services in Puerto Rico. Melaleuca is one of the largest and most successful sales and marketing organizations and is continuously honored for its value-added, family-friendly policies and programs.

Senior executives at VoX commented recently that a strong partnership with a company like Melaleuca demonstrates that a company does not need to be a voice service provider to utilize existing distribution channels and gain a competitive edge in selling VoIP services. "We are very pleased that Melaleuca will be expanding its service offerings in Puerto Rico to include our VoIP services," stated Mark Richards, President and CIO of VoX. "It is especially gratifying when a powerhouse such as Melaleuca, whose core competency is outside the telecommunications arena, sees the benefit of selling VoIP through the thousands of business builders it has in Puerto Rico."

As a company that prides itself in enhancing every aspect of its customers' lives, a spokesperson for Melaleuca said this week that Melaleuca, Inc. immediately recognized the potential VoX has to provide superior and affordable alternatives to nationally advertised brands. Jason Miller, Marketplace Manager of Melaleuca, stated, "VoX is the type of company that we have tremendous success with when we bring their product to market. VoX is providing us the best available product to distribute through the thousands of marketing executives and preferred customers that we have in Puerto Rico." The direct consumer marketing company was confident that no other VoIP provider is offering this combination of high-quality voice service, coupled with local telephone numbers, added features and tremendous savings. "We see a significant opportunity for us to differentiate ourselves from any other VoIP offering and rapidly gain market share," Miller said.

Richards was very positive about Melaleuca's business model. "It's a wonderful fit with VoX's product," he said. "They have changed the way that hundreds of thousands of people shop by eliminating the middleman, reducing marketing and distribution costs, and offering products directly to the consumer through a full-service catalog and Internet shopping system. Their sales growth is truly remarkable and manifests the superior care and quality that their organization utilizes in selling high-quality products."

Both companies are confident that this is the right step for the future of communications in Puerto Rico.
