Rapid Link Announces Private SIP Trunking Services at Carrier Hotels

Wholesale and Enterprise Products Available

OMAHA, NE--(Marketwire - July 9, 2008) - Rapid Link, Incorporated (OTCBB: RPID) today announced availability of private SIP trunking services at select carrier hotels throughout the U.S.

Rapid Link is now accepting orders for SIP trunks directly connected to its private network facilities in addition to its existing internet-based services. Carriers and enterprise customers can now take advantage of Rapid Link's extensive SIP portfolio without relying on any third party networks.

"Customers today are looking to cut costs while demanding the highest quality. With this new service, both carriers and enterprises can eliminate access costs and potential sources of failure," said John Jenkins, CEO of Rapid Link.

"More and more of our retail and wholesale voice customers are interested in migrating to our SIP platform, but are hesitant to use the internet as a transport mechanism. By offering a direct cross-connect to our private network, we can ensure the same high quality these customers have to come to expect from TDM connections," said Mike Prachar, COO of Rapid Link.
